I did the Sport Climbing course with Tucker and it was awesome!

Tucker catered the course to our experience levels and I felt that every step was helpful and built upon the previous skill. There was loads of practice time, climb time, and I finished the course feeling confident that I could practice those skills on my own/with friends.

What a phenomenal experience!

Kinley was certain to understand the goals and objectives that each participant wanted to get out of the course. Her instructions were extremely clear and well-paced, and she would check in with everyone to ensure that techniques and the rationale behind things were understood, and to see how our energy levels were doing.
