"Modern man is conditioned to expect instant gratification, but any success or triumph realized quickly, with only marginal effort, is necessarily shallow.
Meaningful achievement takes time, hard work, persistence, patience, proper intent and self-awareness. The path to success is punctuated by failure, consolidation, and renewed effort."
We're rescuers by trade and climbers by affliction. CSM is a small group that have noticed a growing trend of unsafe rope and rigging practices within a booming climbing industry. Our primary goal is to provide realistic solutions to potentially catastrophic circumstances and empower climbers to master partner and self-rescue. Providing climbers with these skills creates a culture of prepared and self-reliant adventurers!
Our cadre of instructors are climbers of every discipline with over 50 years combined experience in mountain sports. In addition to our mountain experience, we are rope rescue technicians, firemen, SPRAT rope access techs, Urban Search and Rescue specialists, paramedics and damn fun to spend a weekend with!
