Read what some of our past PCGI Course students have to say:


"I think everyone should take this, guide or not, just to understand anchor systems better and gain more confidence in your climbing." - Matt

"This course blew my mind, it was exactly what I needed without really knowing that I needed it!" - Kim

"I would recommend this course to every climber that wants to climb outdoors or even to those that already climb outside. I wanted to feel more comfortable and confident in dealing with the variables of climbing safely in the outdoor climbing environment, this course certainly succeeded in doing that." -Mark

"They were exceptional at delivering the necessary information and then further answering any questions that arose as we worked through the course. Very knowledgeable, very helpful. " - Finn
