My wife and I had our very first multi-pitch rock climbing experience with our amazing guide, Phil. Phil took us to Rundle Mountain to do a 5.5 rated route called Rundle Horn. The route was fairly easy, but after 6 hours of climbing and repelling for 11-pitches we were fatigued and exhausted. The route was very fun, rewarding, and we learned a lot. Our guide, Phil, was very professional, educational, personable, and above all else, safe. We would definitely hire Phil again to be our guide.

The course covers all essential rock rescue skills, plus some nice tips and tricks to just make things easier! A bit expensive for just one day, but the instructor, Phil, was attentive and very well versed.

Last weekend I took MSAA's introduction to trad course with their ACMG guide Phil. We met early at Canmore and made our way to Wasootch slabs for a day of skills. I was brand new to trad climbing, and was looking to get comfortable leading easy trad climbs by taking this course. Despite some brief showers Phil gave us plenty of instruction on the ground regarding placing gear and building multi-directional anchors. The afternoon we also did some mock leads having Phil inspect all of our placements. The instruction was amazing, and I certainly attained my goal of feeling comfortable leading some easy trad routes. Our instructor was amazing, Phil is very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The mileage we got from this course was great considering the weather. If you're looking to get into trad climbing, this is a great point to kick off from!

My family hired Phil Wilhelm to learn to rock climb. We had an incredible time. He did a great job working with my teenage son and daughter as well as my husband and me. He was always teaching and guiding us which allowed us to have a great experience. He did an excellent job managing our different experience levels so we all enjoyed it. My son says it is one of his top 5 adventures so far.

I would like to take the opportunity to express my thanks to Scott McKay and cloud nine guides on my successful guided ice climb on The Professor Falls. From the moment I engaged with my guide Scott, I found him extremely helpful, informative and professional. Scott made me feel very comfortable indeed and is excellent company and conversation with a pleasant, polite manor and a good sense of humour. Scott provided me with an experience of a lifetime and his supervision and mentoring skills were excellent and pitched at the right level that would suit any client I'm sure. I would highly recommend Scott McKay and Cloud Nine Guides to any of my friends or colleagues that may wish to pursue any mountaineering activities in the Alberta area in the future. It was worth every penny (Dollar!) Much appreciated Gary Richardson
