Tracy Martin designed an awesome day of multi-pitch climbing in Red Rock Canyon. My objectives were to not only experience a multi-pitch climb in this terrain, but also refresh some skills learned in previous courses and guiding sessions. We climbed 3 mixed-gear routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.10a, with me leading the first pitch of the 10a. It was a great experience…I felt very safe the entire time, yet the type of rock and unique features posed the occasional challenge. It was a great confidence builder for my own climbing resume and experience/technical skill base. Furthermore, climbing with Tracy was like climbing with a best friend. She is friendly, has a great sense of humor, and is easy going. Yet, her climbing skills are top rate. I’ll definitely climb with her again.
Totally positive experience climbing the Grand Teton that exceeded my expectations. Guides Nate, Jed and Noah were professional, knowledgeable, with great senses of humor, and I felt totally safe and encouraged to push my limits of climbing to gain confidence and still have fun. Also to meet Rob Hesse and share conversation at high camp was very memorable. The trip was well organized and executed with care and precision. The equipment and accommodations were premier…very comfortable and well laid out. The food was good and satisfying. JHMG made this trip the best climbing experience of my life. Well done JHMG!
Tracy was incredible. She listened and built a custom syllabus based on our experience as a couple and our objectives. Cheryl and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience with fun climbing and technical skills combined. We can’t wait to go out with Tracy again to advance our education after solidifying the skills she taught. She was patient, positive, and had a great sense of humor. Combined with her expertise, we couldn’t imagine a better learning environment.
