It was great, lots of information packed in a day. Things I'd change: please, please, please warn people about how cold it gets at the wall. Not everyone has necessarily been to Mile End (we hadn't been before) and the classic "wrap up warm" would have been an understatement considering it dropped to 3 degrees. It was bitterly cold and made focusing quite tricky.

Martina is a very knowledgeable and experienced instructor, friendly and patient and shared the essentials of multipitching with us as well as interesting techniques for handling specific situations. Great course, would highly recommend it.
