Dear Ian (and Jerry)-Now back in UK after a fabulous trip to California. One of the real highlights was my day climbing with Jerry. It was superb. When I set out my requirements to you before leaving for my vacation I didn't believe that they would be satisfied so perfectly. Jerry's choice of route fitted the bill exactly. Long, clean, plenty of variety, just hard enough to be testing and wonderfully exposed. One of the middle pitches would be a match for any in terms of quality. Added to that, Jerry was a great guide and made the day one that I will never forget. He even laid on a day of wall to wall sunshine! All the best and many thanks-Shaun

It seems like every time I climb with SYMG, I have the privilege of getting to see the very best side you all have to offer. Each member of your company has a very special way of communicating and teaching. They are all unique, but they all also share two important characteristics--patience and knowledge. Our guide worked really hard with us all day-not just climbing with us or getting us up the wall, but teaching us as well--making sure we felt like we were learning everything we were doing. He was not just patient-he was kind, and respectful.
