Alpine Rock Climbing Testimonials

The course was incredible. As an intermediate climber I wasn’t sure whether the material would be over my head or stuff I already knew. Our guides did a great job of making sure people left with exactly what they wanted, both in terms of education and climbing. Everything I learned was clear, concise, and I left with a couple of new tricks and technical light bulb realization moments.

I cannot speak highly enough of either of our guides, both from a personal and professional level. The best people. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

2020 Climber

I have been seriously climbing for about a year now with the help of friends & books. I feel like I learned more in four days on this trip than I have learned in an entire year. Not to mention the new found confidence I’m walking away with, thanks to our guides! They could not have possibly done a better job at guiding us.

I ask a lot of questions and I usually feel like my curiosity and eagerness to learn can be a bit annoying. Our guides were stoked on all my questions and gave me more information than I thought I could gain in four days. They seemed to fully cater the program to the needs of the climbers and that is truly incredible!

I LOVED the course and will carry the experience I had with me the rest of my life. The quality of the instruction, the location, the routes selected by the guides, the campsite, etc were all beyond any reasonable expectations I had going into the trip. I absolutely feel ready to use the skills I learned and have already started to plan my next trip.

  • Dear Alpine Ascents: Backcountry Quilts

    Hey Alpine, I’m headed out to Washington in mid-September for a 6-day course (stoked) and I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about backcountry quilts.  Apparently all the cool-kid alpinists are using them.  Can I bring one on my course? Sincerely, Steve House in Training  Hi Steve House in Training, Thanks for reaching out […]
