Honestly, I thought I would not get much out of the course when I went. I was sooooo wrong! It helped me get to what I feel is a new level for me. I (and the group) were able to address (and practice) any weaknesses with our gear, skills, and review our plans. Also, I believe we learned about things we had no idea about. We were all able to build our knowledge base, practice a variety of skills we knew and learned a tremendous amount more (with hands on practice). Creek is an amazing person and instructor. I would highly recommend this course and the opportunity to spend some time at Willow Haven and with Creek!
