Hubby and 2 kids (11 and 15) had the pleasure of embarking on this climbing adventure with Shankar as guide and they absolutely loved it! Shankar fueled the day w knowledge, humor, and enthusiasm! We will proudly display our Sylvan Rocks car stickers and make reservations to climb again ASAP! Next time they climb they get to go to even cooler climbing spots cuz they have done “climbing 101” already! Bring snacks and water!

We booked a 6 hour lesson with Brandon and Chris in early September, 2020. We are a family of 5 with kids age 11, 9 and 6. This was our first outdoor rock climbing experience and it was amazing! We thought we would be getting to scale some large boulders outside. In the end, three of us climbed to the top of Rhinoceros Rock, a mountain in Custer State Park that is 130 feet high! Brandon and Chris were great guides and teachers. They worked extremely well with the kids, including helping my 6 year old not be afraid of heights and feel safe. They were very thorough, safe and fun. I highly recommend using Sylvan Rocks Climbing School if you are anywhere close to the area. It was the highlight of our trip to the Black Hills.

Chris Spellmeyer and Shankar found the perfect balance of challenging and encouraging us. The instruction was excellent. The trip was very well organized and the selection of climbs just right for our group. We really appreciated the team's sense of humor and comfortable guidance. The gear was top notch and we wasted no time in transit- we were climbing from start to finish.
