Black Hills Rock Climbing Adventures

5 stars

Great experience, the instruction felt personal, and time on the rocks was maximized. Shoutout to the incredible instructors, Shankar, Carissa and Taylor; they were relaxed, down to earth and cool. They were thorough with safety and technique, and I felt confident with the basic knowledge I left with.

As an experienced climber who had taken a bunch of years off of the rock I’ve started to get back into climbing with my wife and two kids, 9 and 11.I had some detailed nitty gritty questions about gear for my kids and some changes that have taken place in climbing since I’d dropped off so I stopped in Sylvan Rocks in Custer to see if I could find a few answers.Darryl was a wealth of knowledge and he was able to give me all the info I needed. In detail. I had been bumping into some of the Sylvan Rocks guides while we were climbing and they were impressive. Darryl carries himself in that same professional way as he dealt with our needs. Darryl didn’t suggest we upgrade any gear, but I took the opportunity to make some purchases of gear we wanted to give a try because Darryl was so helpful.I love it when a company earns my business. Sylvan Rocks did for sure.In a couple of years the kids will be ready to head out for some instruction from a qualified guide. Sylvan Rocks will get our business.

My son and I did an introductory climbing day a couple of years ago with Sylvan Rocks. That day made my son fall in love with climbing. Last week, we returned for a three-day climbing session, and it was even better than the first. Our guide Shankar gave us three amazing days that culminated in my son's ascent of Spires 2 and 3 of the Cathedral Spires in Custer State Park. He was patient, good-humored, and laser-focused on safety while dealing both with my beginner's mistakes, and with my son's need for technical training. While he pushed me to stretch my limits, there was never any point at which I felt it was inappropriate. And, we got to the top of the "Aquarium." On top of all that, Shankar's just a really cool guy. I feel that we got more than our money's worth out of this experience, and we will be back to climb again with Sylvan Rocks.
