A top rope M set up was put up and we climbed some vertical ice. The feedback during the climbs were spot on. I felt so much growth in technique. So worth it. I highly recommend Mooney Mountain Guides and especially Laurie Watts.
Despite the inherent stresses, the exam was tightly run and thoroughly enjoyable. Their teaching was conversational and tailored to the individual at hand. We learned not to think in terms of rigid rules but principles that we should tailor to our specific contexts.
I can’t say enough good things, and I look forward to learning from these master educators again!
