Just got back from our second backpacking trip with KAF and it was just as amazing as our first adventure last year. The instructors at KAF are the real deal. They are sincere, experienced, patient, and enthusiastic about sharing their passion with everyone in the group. My teenage son and I joined together both times and had the best experience.... More

We had a wonderful time with Nate. Accessing the spot was easy, at an exit on I90 just east of North Bend with just a 10-15 mins walk from where we parked. As we were all mostly beginners, Nate spent time teaching us about climbing gear, knots, commands, belaying... It was quite a class in a short time and we... More

I’d been dreaming of picking up backpacking, and had my eye on the Intro to Backpacking Classroom and field classes for more than a year, but frankly was intimidated. Concerned I wouldn’t be deemed ripped or fit enough in my current shape, and I was nervous an intro “class” would feel more like a guided trip geared to sell more... More

Oh what a day we had at exit 38 with Nate and Keenan! I contacted Kaf before we came to Seattle and they were wonderful in their communication thanks to Rikki. Climbing day Nate and Keenan met us at South Bellevue park and ride and then were so friendly and professional in their instruction and guiding and so encouraging to... More

I took both of the intro to backpacking courses (classroom and excursion). The instructor Paul was fantastic! He made backpacking feel approachable and I learned A LOT in a really short period of time (packing, clean water, food, topography, compass, etc). The trip we took to the Alpine Lakes was amazing and very well planned. KAF also seems to have... More

I took the AMGA SPI course through KAF in April 2015. One defining aspect of KAF is the education and instruction you receive throughout their courses. Their instructors truly want to pass on their knowledge and skills so that you can safely enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits without relying on a guide and their course structure is set up... More

I recently took a Single Pitch Instructor course with KAF. Both instructors brought a good blend of experience, climbing skills, and a supportive attitude to effectively convey the course info. I had a great time working with them over three days. I would recommend KAF to friends and family, not just for AMGA courses, but general recreation. Dream it, do... More

KAF has genuine, compassionate guides, great instruction, and their emphasis on empowerment and education will ensure you walk away with new skills and great memories. They are also more affordable than most guide companies in the area. KAF makes learning how to navigate and experience the outdoors a joyful, safe experience.

There is a good reason why KAF gets 5 stars from all its reviewers. As a two-season KAF client who summitted Rainier this year with 3 other clients, Morgan Miller and Paul Taylor, I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience. Morgan and Paul are superb guides, excellent teachers, and wired into the spirit of mountaineering. If you... More
