Spent a stellar day on a multi-pitch alpine route with Andrew. Super efficient, safe, yet always took the time to explain what he was doing and why (setting up anchors a certain way, route finding, etc.). He was open to anything I suggested as possible objectives but was also an excellent resource in helping me pick a route—a great sense of humour with some awesome stories. I would recommend Andrew and this company--professional, friendly and efficient staff. Thanks for a great day out!

We did a 3 day trip with Andrew and Tucker. Staying at Keith's Hut, we got to do a steep snow climb on Matier, snow, and rock on Joffre. We knew we were safe with Andrew and Tucker while doing some mixed alpine climbing out of our comfort zone. They were probably one of the best guides we have ever had, and we have climbed around the world. Thanks for a great birthday climb!!
