“Professional, thorough and fun SPI course and exam by ACS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Thank you ACS and Eli for a putting on a great SPI course and examination at Pinnacles National Monument! As a long time climber and guide, I was excited to see what the AMGA curriculum was all about. As expected, it's a super professional skill set - a definite must for any climbing guide. Eli was very thorough and clear in imparting the knowledge to us. Not to mention the whole thing was just a blast. I'd highly recommend this course, and ACS as a provider, to any aspiring rock climbing guide.

“Great afternoon for a family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I wanted to do something adventurous with my family (wife and 8 and 11 yr old boys) and this was perfect! Our guide was knowledgable and calm and brought us to a great, picturesque spot to do some climbing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this trip!

“not for the faint of heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is not just beginner stuff, you must be in decent shape. I consider myself in "ok" shape and fairly athletic. THIS WAS AWESOME. I was totally scared out of my mind, but GRANT was such an awesome coach and instructor, he made the whole experience that much more awesome. My husband and I went to Otter Cliffs and had a great time. It was really a thrill of a lifetime. We had gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery and an AMAZING instructor. Thank you Grant. You are the man.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was one of the best experiences I've had in a long time. Our guide was amazing, having just me (53 yrs old, no experience) and my daughter (17 yrs old, no experience either) for a 1/2 day journey to Otter Cliffs. Our guide (Hannah) was terrific, patient, and had us climbing and descending all morning. Our only regret is that we didn't do this for more time. Very, very highly recommended.
