8 Day Alps Mountaineering Course Testimonials

From 10 Day Cascades Course: 

Overall I had one of the best experiences in my life during this trip. The program was great – from the first 6 days on Mt. Baker to summiting Rainier via Kautz and getting back home safe. The guides carefully selected our camping and training spots so that we were all by ourselves on the mountain without other groups and being distracted. Then as we continued with Kautz route on Rainier, all that hard work of the previous 6 days was paying off –  the climb certainly was challenging but it was fun too – our guides have great personalities and the jokes were a great part of what made this strip so fun and time to fly by!  And having such experienced guides with us made me feel confident and safe (well apart from the unexpected objective hazards which our guides were constantly reminding us of ;-). Given that this was my very first experience of mountaineering I cannot really think of any weaknesses… I really enjoyed the program, guides and team members and want to believe that I took a lot from this course
