Had a great learning day with Paul - anchor building, multi-pitch scenarios and into climbing situations that challenged my abilities. Thanks Paul & NCMG.

I have done two climbing/mountaineering trips with NCMG with Jeff Ward as our guide (Mt. Baker in 2014 and Forbidden Peak in 2017). Both trips were amazing. NCMG and Jeff are totally committed to making each trip an awesome and unforgettable experience. They go above and beyond to ensure this. If you are looking for professional guides who love what they do and are devoted to you, look no further than NCMG. I highly recommend them.

NCMG provided excellent guides/climbing partners for three days of technical rock climbing in the Washington Pass area. On the first day, Josh Cole led a day climb of the Rappel Grapple route (5.8+) on Liberty Bell at Washington Pass. On the second and third days, Kirk Schumacher guided an overnight trip to the larch bench below Burgundy Spire. On day two he led a climb of the West Ridge route on Paisano Pinnacle, adjacent to Burgundy Spire. Day three we hiked out, and after a sandwich at the Mazama Store we spent the afternoon at Fun Rock, where Kirk taught me a number of rescue methods and techniques. NCMG arranged this trip on just a few days' notice; I inquired on a Wednesday and we were climbing the following Monday. Josh and Kirk were not only ultra-safe and highly competent climb leaders but also excellent companions with a wealth of good stories to pass the time on the trail and a wealth of good information about climbing and backpacking equipment and techniques. Their deep and detailed knowledge of local conditions was indispensable. They did a great job of selecting climbs that were challenging yet do-able for me. I was completely satisfied and not only would but actually did hire NCMG for guiding a subsequent climbing trip.

Recently, I had the opportunity to do a two day, multi-pitch rock climbing course with NCMG. My guide, Drew, was in constant contact with me leading up to the course, and was friendly and professional during our two days of climbing. Not only did we meet our objective, topping out on Liberty Bell, I also learned a lot of practical information to take home so that I can continue to climb safely. Everyone at NCMG made my experience memorable and enjoyable! I'll be back!
