Here's what our members have to say:
"For many years I was finding it extremely hard to find the right climbing partners and mentors whom I could trust my life with. Moreover, there was no way I could afford any guided technical climbs. I was never able to consistently climb technical routes and mostly limited my adventures to alpine solo climbing (with a few narrow escapes), indoor climbing gyms, hiking, and backpacking. I recently found about MAA and was kicking myself for not having discovered them earlier. What an amazing organization and community. At first I could not believe that they are non-profit offering training courses, online classes and events worth thousands of dollars for free or a very small cost. The certified training team and the event leaders I have climbed with are very knowledgeable, friendly and most importantly great teachers. Another cool side-effect is that the teachers indirectly help you figure out the right climbing gear. This has helped me avoid all the trial and errors and has saved me a lot of money and most importantly time. I started by attending multiple training classes such as RCK 3 series and SIG 3.4 and participated in a few technical climbs with event leaders like Darren, Todd, Nick and David. Thanks for everything guys!"
