Summit Expeditions
I am an experienced climber, I wanted to increase my level and areas of climbing ability. I have climbed with Jamie a couple of times, he explains rope techniques and different areas of climbing so that it's easily understood. Looking forward to our March climb of the Y couloir on the North face of Pikes Peak.

I would reccommend Summit Expeditions to beginning and experienced climbers of all levels.
