Testimonials For ISM

Eira, Myself and Gabriel had a wonderful time in Switzerland with Pat and Ross - thank you very much. It was well worth the wait.

Timothy Selvage
Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)

Thanks for organising an excellent week. The course format, accommodation and set up was perfect. The guide was outstanding and gave us a full week of constructive tuition. I was able to put his training into practice the following week when I met up with a friend and did the Cosmiques Arrete.

R W (2017)
Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)

The course content was brilliant. No knocking whatsoever. We had Jacky for the duration, and his experience shines through and his leadership. He taught me a lot of things, not just the black and white of things but actually quick methods to overcome tricky situations!
