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
Bernese Oberland 4000ers

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)
