Patrick was an amazing guide! Me, my 15 yo son and 18 and 13 yo daughters all had a blast. Weather was amazing and for a half day we got lots of climbing in. Highly recommend, would do again but maybe next time would do a longer trip

My girlfriend and I enjoy ice climbing and we have climbed in Montana and Colorado many times. However, we were new to the Canadian Rockies and we chose to hire Ridgeline to help familiarize ourselves with the area and we wanted to do some multi-pitch ice climbing in an area not prone to avalanche danger. I have to say Patrick was spot on with the areas he recommended and he arranged for one of his affiliates (Nolan) to guide us. Nolan was excellent person to be around and is obviously a very skilled climber and instructor. We would definitely go with Ridgeline again and look forward to more climbing in the Canadian Rockies.

My partner and I did a private lesson with Ridgeline Guiding, and having climbed with many guides over the years I can say that Patrick was hands down one of the best instructors I have had. I left the day with way more than I expected to learn, and his feedback was tailored and focused on helping each of us climb more efficiently and in the end safer. Even if I knew more experienced partners to climb with in Banff, I'd still enjoy starting the season off climbing with Patrick. His coaching on movement and technique have made it easier to climb steeper objectives with less pump. Thanks!!

Because this matters too, the booking process, communication and overall experience with Ridgeline couldn't have been easier. They are super professional and organized without feeling corporate.

I can't say enough good things about my guiding experience with Patrick at Ridgeline Guiding. Having never ice climbed before, I was worried that I'd really struggle on our trip, but Patrick's thoughtful instruction helped me to develop passable form within a few days and get on to climbing some really fun routes in the Banff area. His patience, safety culture, guidance, and enthusiasm are all first rate. Definitely hope to have the opportunity to climb with him again!

Competent, friendly Patrick, explained the route, risks, and several safety protocols before we hit the trail. Also, made sure each participant was equipped for the day; checked several times during the day with each of us on how we were doing. Consider yourself lucky if you get an opportunity to be guided by Patrick.

Myself and 3 adult friends spent a Sunday with Patrick as he introduced us to rock climbing at the Wasootch Slabs. We had a great day; Patrick's instruction was clear, his competence was obvious, and he was just really funny, thoughtful and effective in making sure we had a great experience. At day's end we were tired and smiling and really interested in pursuing more, thanks to Ridgeline's effective guiding.

I had two fantastic days of instructional multi pitch climbing with Ridgeline. Patrick and Maarten are extremely knowledgeable and patiently answered all of my questions. The locations were beautiful and the climbing super fun. I would definitely book with them again.

My 16yr old had a great time with Patrick on the Sunshine Slabs Patrick is hugely experienced and it showed as he instructed Harry on the routes which got tougher and tougher. Harry thoroughly enjoyed himself.

My sons and I went through Patrick's outdoor lead climbing lesson last weekend. It was fantastic. Patrick is an excellent instructor and we feel that we have a good base of knowledge to work from now as we build on our experience level.

For the record, my almost 17-year-old son got a tremendous amount from the course. My 14-year-old son will still need to be re-taught a lot as we go but he now knows the risks involved in climbing outdoors and the importance of acting carefully and thoughtfully when planning and executing our adventures.

Best choice for an outdoor climb, especially if it’s your first time. I was glad I went with someone that had the knowledge to explain everything. Made it a lot nicer knowing you could trust your belayer. Wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the heights but went smooth. Walked away understanding more than I thought I would and the confidence to tackle bigger climbs. Would recommend for anyone looking to get out there.
