Went with three kids (9, 8, 7 years old) and husband. Shankar was FANTASTIC! Got all three kids to the top, and both adults. None of us had any previous climbing experience. This was by far the highlight of our trip to SD. Best way to experience Custer Park!
Great experience! My wife and I have not done any outdoor climbing, but were willing to be challenged! We started on a fun climb up Beer and Pretzels overlooking Sylvan Lake! Jeff did a great job at understanding our skill levels and accommodating climbs to both push us, allow us to learn, and most of all enjoy our time! I would definitely recommend this experience. We are excited to climb more now that we have some skills to work with and are excited to climb again when we visit the Black Hills next time. Big thanks again to Jeff for being so professional, knowledgeable, and answering all our questions. Get out there and climb some crystals in the beautiful Black Hills!! :).
Brandon and Jeff were phenomenal guides. I was with Jeff for day two in Custer and Summit Day on Devils Tower. He was knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and enhanced the experience. Safety was their priority number 1 and I did not feel unsafe at any given point. I would highly recommend Sylvan Rocks Climbing School to anyone looking to climb in the Black Hills.
