"My trips with Mark have always been a highlight of my season. Mark's got the knowledge, the skills and the stories."
"With the 2 day trips you get in a lot of climbing in a short amount of time. You go into the Bugs "light and fast"!"
"I highly recommend Mark as a guide. His skill level and experience would be difficult to match.""
"When it comes to technical skill, local knowledge and leadership style, I have never climbed with anyone better in North America or Europe."
"My favorite trip to date has been our 5 day trip to climb the Lyell’s and Mt Forbes."
