“Most impressive to me was Majka’s amazing ability to both encourage and push a person to climb at their highest potential, a combination of skills she seemed to weave effortlessly as she would teach fundamentals and help work through emotional blocks throughout both days. In my work, I’m a clinical psychologist and consultant, and I was frequently impressed during our time at how naturally Majka is able to facilitate and encourage personal performance with a mix of support and guidance.”

An Introduction to Ice Climbing in New Hampshire
“As I return to my desk job in Ohio, just this quick note to tell you again how much I enjoyed climbing Hallet’s with you last Monday. I was pretty awestruck by the mountain, and by your obvious expertise! I would surely enjoy climbing with you again and will take your suggestion to ask for you next time I’m climbing in Colorado – which I hope will be next summer, if not before. Thanks so much, wish I were still in RMNP!”
