Willy was a great instructor. He explained everything exahustively with real examples. Later, he checked how we were doing the maneuvers on our own. We got confidence to climb next day by ourselves using all the techniques he taught us. Apart from that, he was nice, funny and we even had a beer together. we hihgly recommend him.
