Took AST2 with MSAA last week. Amazing experience. Our skilled Guides controlled group dynamics, pushed our brains and bodies just the right amount, and privileged us with "taking the lead" and making decisions under their diplomatic lead. I learned so much and had so much...More

We did the Via Ferrata climb with April. She was friendly and helpful. The climb was a little more difficult than I anticipated (and I'm in good shape), but maybe that's because it was my first time trying this. The views on the way up...More
