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

KAF has quality instructors that truly want you to succeed in bein safe and having fun. Our instructor to student ratio on our day was 2:1! It made for a lot of personal attention. They used the time very effectively, giving us the opportunity to learn everything we needed to to sport lead, and repeat the important steps so we... More

I went out with Joel, our guide, and my daughter and her friend. They are both experienced indoor gym climbers as am I. However, none of us had any experience with outdoor climbing. Joel made the trip fun and educational. He did a great job finding routes that would test each of us. The kids and I both walked away... More

KAF really focuses on the education and the experience for the student. I took their AMGA SPI course at Smith Rocks, OR and had an amazing experience, far beyond what I expected to receive. If you're serious about learning great skills and getting the most for your experience, go with KAF!

The guys at KAF are professional and knowledgeable. The ultimate goal of taking a course with KAF is the education. They try to equip you with the knowledge necessary to make smart decisions in the backcountry. I, personally, want to get into backcountry skiing and this is definitely a step in the right direction. Thank you KAF adventures, Mick, and... More

We took the sport leading course and then went to an open climb with these guys, and they all were amazing :) They are very helpful and eager to share their knowledge. No matter what your skill level is, it will be improved :)
