As our first outdoor climb, our excellent guide Tucker was able to coach me and my girlfriend up the side of the Chief. The experience of climbing a vertical rock face with the amazing views of the chief and Howe Sound is something I won't soon forget.

-TJ Henderson

Did two climbing courses with Altus and both were great! Very skilled and experienced instructors who knew how to pass on their knowledge and let you learn hands on. I can fully recommend Altus for any outdoor course or trip!
