Short of taking a self-rescue course with a certified guide, this is the best thing you can do for your safety while climbing. I've been climbing for 5 years (trad climbing for 2) and should have taken this course a long time ago. It's logically organized in videos that are straight to the point and skip all the fluff and jumble (looking at you HowNot2!). Also the animation are so so so so so helpful. This course gets gets an A+++

Great course

Andris Priedīte

Easy to follow videos and voice narrations. 3d drawings and animations were super helpful to visualize complex setups. Really liked that the author gave pros and cons for most of the methods featured in videos.

Brilliant! Title says it all.

Baz Cardinal

Excellent scenarios for anyone who has been climbing (trad climbing) for a few years. Also a great introduction to aid climbing/big wall climbing. Gives the viewer a taste of how much more is involved.

Excellent course

Blagoj Milenkov

Even though I knew a lot of things as a trad climber, the course is still great because there are little things that are very important. Also the sense of humor is very great. Keep going with other courses.

duane swanson

I first got the big wall / aid course and was blown away by the quality instruction and thoroughness. when I saw the preview of this one I was super excited to get it. the course doesn't disappoint. worth far more than the price he's charging.
