Cascades Rock Climbing Testimonials

Program followed a logical course the allowed for individuals to develop at a comfortable pace.  Very Good program.

Excellent!  Small class and individual attention from a real pro, can’t be beat.  Excellent Guide, great focus on safety, much was learned.  Far better training than I have received from other outdoor organizations.

Great time. High quality instruction. Plenty of time for repetition and practice with instructor feedback. I can use all this information this weekend! Both guides were great teachers. I felt that they did a great job passing along knowledge and then working 1:1 with anyone who needed a bit more hands on instruction. They were definitely aware of the different learning types.

Overall the program was superb! I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in increasing their rock climbing skills. Our guides were excellent leaders.

Constantine B.

The guides’ skill level was outstanding. They were obviously very experienced in back country as well as technical skills. Not only was my guide an excellent climber but a great teacher.

program was everything I expected and more!  I received and learned the information I was looking for and more.  My guide really made this the course the most informative program I have ever attended.  I have been with other groups and all I have to say is that every guide who I have met through Alpine Ascents is genuine and professional and a pleasure to be around.  I can’t say that for the others.

The program was outstanding.  He was a great instructor, we had a great time and learned so much.  I would recommend this course to anyone interested in rock climbing.  The length of the program is good because you get to make lots of climbs without having to use too much vacation. –

  • Staying Hydrated in the Backcountry

    Sometimes the harsh environment encountered in mountaineering can make even the simplest tasks difficult. Staying hydrated is a perfect example – something that is among the most banal of tasks in the lowcountry can become exceedingly complicated in a cold, snowy environment. When all available water is locked up in solid form as snow or […]
