What a great mix of culture and awesome climbing! Everything went well, logistics, top-notch guides, food, awesome mountains. Really enjoyed being in La Paz and experiencing the people and culture...
~Debbie B.
I was very impressed with how smoothly the logistics unfolded in all steps of the trip. I know how many details go into trip planning and there wasn't a missed step... I'd like to give a big thumb's up to you, and I'll be sure to look at another trip with IMG, with Greg as leader. Thank you for all you did to ensure such a wonderful experience.

IMG is really a class act. This became very evident after seeing other expeditions and how they lived and went about their climb...
~Gary G.
I left the mountain without a doubt that we chose and were with the best organization and people on the hill...
