Testimonials For ISM

Summiting Mont Blanc was an important milestone for me which I am grateful to all at ISM. Particularly Terry, who is the ultimate professional never compromising on safety. Max is a pure gem with wonderful guidance and outstanding people skills in abundance.Altogether a brilliant week!

David (2017)
Mont Blanc Ascent

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!

Andy Challenor
Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)

Learned loads and acclimatised well during the course. Its obviously been very carefully planned. Guiding and Instruction was excellent. Anders was fantastic throughout and made the whole course really good fun. A very professional instructor with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended.
