“Team Mia Forever!”

I’ve known Mia for 17 years; in fact, I took my first rock climbing class from her in Vail in 2004 and have hired her as a guide more times than I can count since then. Mia’s November Moab Women’s crack climbing clinic is no exception to the world-class experiences I have always had with her. She is an incredibly badass climber of course and so much more. She’s an amazing and patient teacher, an enthusiastic cheerleader, a technical/safety fanatic, and an excellent ambassador for the sport of climbing. CMS is lucky to have such a gifted and highly AMGA-credentialed guide on staff. I’m on Team Mia forever!
