"I had the pleasure of spending 8 days with the team at ASM as I worked my way through the Abseil Leaders Course and Rock III. I can not recommend both these courses and this company highly enough.

All in all I have had the pleasure of working with some genuinely exceptional and gifted young instructors who are a true asset to ASM and the wider climbing/abseiling community. If you're planning on spending time in the Blue Mountains and are looking for a challenging, exhilarating and rewarding experience then head straight for ASM."
