The guides were fantastic for our ice climbing adventure – they had a lot of knowledge about the area, were kind and patient, and very skilled. They made sure that everyone in the group was comfortable and safe throughout the entire trip. I would highly recommend Girth Hitch Guiding to anyone looking for a great outdoor adventure!
