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.

  • Self Love and Wilderness

    Submission by Avalon Qian. “Tag responsibly, keep the West wild.” I pause mid-mindless-instagram scroll. This is not the first time I have seen this sentiment in an instagram post or an article about leaving no trace: “Tag responsibly.” “Keep the West wild.” What does this tag mean? I understand the fear that wild places may […]

  • Overboot Fitting 101

    Submission by Andy Souder in the gear department. Double boots are a great step-up from single boots for high-altitude expeditions. They aren’t sufficient for all environments though. Places like Denali and Vinson are often too cold even for double boots! You have two routes depending on your budget, goals, and fit needs:   A “triple/8000m/all-in-one” boot […]
