AMGA Rock Instructors Course Smith Rocks 04-21/30-2010

I took the AMGA Rock Instructors Course at Smith Rocks in Oregon with fellow guide Mark Folsom.  The course started in the middle of April and lasted until the 30th.  Both of us had a great time learning how to better ourselves as guides.  The instructors were amazing and the location was a ton of fun.  The weather was cooler than we all would have wanted but for the most part everything went great.  The camping location had beautiful views from every spot on the property.  the panorama of the Cascade mountains is ever-present.  The information that is learned in this course is valuable.  Everything applies to guiding in the Gunks and New England.  Sport climbing at Smith is off the hook.  You can basically climb route after route without moving very much.  The multi-pitch gear routes vary from O.K. to excellent.  This a great course for any aspiring guide.  I highly recommend furthering your education from AMGA courses.
