"Dean was excellent. Found the balance between detailed explanation with relevant information and respecting where the group was at. Skilled climber, and skilled leader. A perfect combination."

"I wanted to let you know the fantastic experience I had whilst on the Ice Climbing Course at Wye Creek, Queenstown N.Z. A very challenging course for me being new to ice climbing, but I would have been disappointed had the course been any easier. Professionally run operation by A.C. down to finer details of meals and pre course arrangements by administration staff. A special thanks to Dean Staples course guide, incredible talent and skills. "
Warren Symons, New Zealand, Ice climbing Course, 2015
