Doesn't matter if you have no experience or are used to climbing 5.12's, this outfit can teach everyone something. Extremely knowledgeable, safe and really makes the experience about you - not watching a clock. Coming back for sure!

Adam was a great instructor for scouts of all levels. He was patient with them and was able to get some to overcome their fear of heights and finish the day with a full route. Be sure to pack enough food for lunch.
