My family had an amazing adventure with Jacob and Jacques. They were professional and supporting. Even my wife who had initial trepidations felt safe and secure. The views were incredible, experience amazing and we all agreed that it was the high point during our trip to Alaska.

That is completely understandable, ice climbing can be scary and intimidating but our goal is to make it accessible for anyone who wants to give it a try. It's hard but very rewarding. So glad you decided to join us and push your limits on your vacation! Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback and please come test your climbing skills again soon. Each time it gets easier!! :)
