"Coby was awesome. At no point did any of us worry about our safety under his guidance, even when it seemed like we should, ie. hiking up Hillman's. Despite our lack of technical skills, he displayed great patience, humor and encouragement during sections that were difficult for our team. His sense of our ability and interests made our trip incredible. That, on top of the phenomenal weather, made this an absolutely perfect trip. I felt he communicated a good amount, was transparent with his decisions and expectations. We felt he catered to our needs (we're training for a Rainier summit in May) and offered excellent advice and insight. Anyone who has Coby as a guide is lucky as all heck; he's a great guy and excellent leader."
Pretty epic day. Coby is an awesome guide and we certainly got way more than expected out of the day including the climbing and being asked to help on a SAR. He did some impressive work up there to help that injured skier. It was an adventure I won't soon forget!
Coby was a fantastic guide! His professionalism, knowledge and ability to explain and show us the proper techniques made all the difference. Our overall experience far exceeded expectations and we came away having an amazing day and made us wanting to go back again to explore ice climbing further.
Thank you, Tyler
I can never ask for anything better when I am in the Whites with Northeast Mountaineering. My guide, Coby, was top notch at his game. I will DEFINITELY be back next ice season for sure, if not later this year.
Coby is an awesome guy! Coby had great knowledge about climbing, mountaineering & gear. He was also super encouraging to newbie ice climbers! We had a blast and can't wait to come back for another NE Mountaineering adventure.
It was a great day. Coby was fun and informative, and most of all, safe. Great day!
Coby led the way during our climb up Mt. Washington. As a first timer, I had no idea what to expect. I felt safe and well informed the entire time. The conditions were perfect which allowed for an unforgettable day and some great stories to take home. We laughed and joked as though we had known our guide for years; Coby was very personable yet professional! I would definitely recommend Coby and NE mountaineering to friends and family and can't wait to go back. Thanks again guys!! (and also thanks for the pictures and sending me my gear that I forgot in the bunk house..!)
Coby was an incredible guide for us. We had unexpected obstacles, like the rope freezing up causing belay difficulty, and my own not-spectacular ice climbing ability, which he handled with nothing less than encouraging optimism and complete professionalism. Thank you NEM and Coby for such a great trip!
