“The climbing at this year's camp was the hardest I have experienced through the 3 BMCs and 8 Alpine Club GMCs that I have attended. Mt. Wotan and the Toadstool were the most technical routes that we have done. We were challenged, rewarded and felt totally safe at all times, the guides did a great job. I'm glad that we were able to pull it off, looking forward to next year.”
Thanks so much for your email and yet another amazing week at the BMC. Like I said to you when we were up there it was the highlight of my summer. Thanks for all of the amazing work you put into it!
“Brad, take care, and thanks for all your efforts. I know how simple you make the complexity of a wilderness camp appear. There’s so much work behind the scenes and you’re the guy that knows how to do it.”
I learned so much during your course and had a fantastic time. I am certain you will see me next year for the AST 2 course!
Favourite Characteristics of the camp for Mary Ann:
Beyond the location, tech.climbing and comraderie, I liked:
the hot shower
the gourmet food
the individual tents
the personal wake up call every morning by Brad Harrison!
Of course, I cannot neglect to mention, that the Guides were spectacular. I just love that Kir and Peter; and getting to know Alex and Chris was very lovely as well.
Hard to improve on this camp; as there were different and interesting objectives every day.
I absolutely loved the camp, and am definitely keen to come back again. Next time I will have a better idea of what to expect, in terms of preparing myself for it.
I liked the guide/client ratio at this camp - we were lucky, with only 11 "campers" - but what was nice, was the opportunity for folks to go off and do different trips, depending on their interest, fitness level, experience etc. I also liked the Snow School (have never done anything like that before) and especially the Rock School.
I had a great time at the camp--what made it special for me was the location, the small group of people, the guides and private time as well as mingling with others. I loved the luxury of the hot shower. You were incredibly attentive to detail and making sure everyone was looked after. The meals were perhaps too sumptuous.
I will definitely attend the camp next year and will encourage more people to come.
I am pleased to announce the location of the fourth annual Boutique Mountaineering Camp! Please join us in the remote Gothics area of the Selkirk Mountains.
The 2015 BMC is up and running, Week 1 is complete and Week 2 is well underway. The campsite is very friendly, weather has been a bit rainy but the participants have been enjoying themselves.
Thanks for a great time!!
