"I've been climbing quite a while and learned many new skills. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. A great experience." -Brett Eyben, Leavenworth
"A very good day. Our guide was able to read our ability level and help us do as much as was possible and we were comfortable with." -Steve
"I knew it would be good to take the class but I had no idea of the level of expertise I would have the benefit of. The knowledge, experience, and attitude of the instructor was tremendous." -Avalanche I Course Participant
"It is apparent to me that your knowledge, experience and judgment justify the rather high degree of confidence which a student of the arts you teach must have in his/her instructor. You can be sure that if anyone asks, I would give a high recommendation." -Jon Hunnington
