My husband and I went out climbing with Brad studying a trip to Colorado for our anniversary. My husband had been climbing before and I had not. Brad provided a great experience for both of us. Lots of encouragement and coaching for me and a good amount of challenge for my husband. We both really enjoyed the day trip with Apex!
