Sam is a fantastic coach. The coaching I received on footwork made such a difference and the overnight stay on the ledge was an amazing memory that will last a lifetime.

I needed an intro to trad climbing, and the course I did was spot on. The instructor tailored the course to our group (of six people), and he was extremely competent and personable. I'd definitely do another Gaia Adventures course.
