Testimonials For ISM

Thanks for a fantastic week. It was really one of the best things I have ever done. I learned a lot during the week, not only about climbing technique, but also about attitude.

Lachlan MacGregor

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!
