Words cannot express my sincere thanks for all 3 of our guides outstanding performance. They did an exceptional job mentoring, coaching, and teaching all of the students. They picked the perfect amount of difficulty and matched it to the climbers talent and ability for every objective. Their professionalism, dedication, and wisdom was above reproach and all the students soaked up every bit of knowledge they had to offer. This was by far the best course I have taken from Alpine. All of our objectives were difficult and our guides didn’t let anyone quit. By the end of the class I felt confident, strong and ready to take on bigger objectives.

The course was incredible. The organization, preparedness and execution of our schedule and curriculum was top rate. The basic outline of training held me in good stead, including the types, intervals, durations and weight suggested for training. Each worked together well to prepare me.
