Al & Joan Morena

Mountain Top, PA

"Both my wife Joan and I have known and been climbing with Marty since 1991 (that's over 18 years ago). He has always been a strong, safe, and well-informed climber no matter whether he is climbing in his back yard at the Gunks or in other areas which he is not as familiar with . We have climbed with Marty in New Hampshire; Red Rocks, NV; Seneca Rocks, WV; Needles, SD; Devils Tower, WY; and other locations. Additionally, we have climbed with many Internationally Certified Guides in many countries over the past 20 years, and we consider Marty one of the best. He has a great positive personality, is very motivational, and lots of fun - important on any long trip! Above all Marty has provided us with the instruction and encouragement necessary to become much better climbers and get the most out of the sport."
