We've been climbing with Sylvan Rocks for years and each time it is a highlight of our trip to SD. Our guide over the years has been Chris, who is always friendly and attentive to your safety and skill level. We strongly recommended Sylvan Rocks for an adventure of a lifetime!

Brandon was our guide for the day. We chose the 4 hour climbing adventure and was absolutely perfect for us. My husband and I don't have a lot of experience with climbing and Brandon did a fantastic job at explaining everything. He talked us through every step of the way and felt safe. He went the extra mile with us and greatly appreciate it! Would go again for sure. Thanks so much!!

We had such an amazing time! Brandon was our guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and personable! My husband and I went for the 6 hr climb package and it was everything that we hoped it would be! We were challenged and exhilarated, yet felt very safe the entire time! We are novice climbers and Brandon invested the time to teach us basic climbing skills-which we greatly appreciated. He was amazing at gauging our comfort level and providing us with climbs that were a great fit for us with amazing views! We can’t say enough great things about Brandon at Sylvan Rocks and we can’t wait to bring our kids back to experience the challenge and fun that climbing provides! This package is an amazing value for the investment! Climb on! : ).
