We had a great time climbing with Jeff at Sylvan Rocks Climbing School. The company is really well run and you can tell that they are fully invested in making sure you have a great time. The owners are guides themselves so they do everything they can to make sure you feel safe, challenged, and satisfied with your experience. We even went out during an unseasonably snowy day in September and had a blast. Highly recommended!

I can’t say enough good things about Jeff and Brandon and the awesome experience I had climbing in Custer State Park! I learned so many cool new skills, achieved new goals, had great conversation, and felt super safe the whole time. Jeff also went out of his way to spend a couple additional hours with me to talk through all the cool things to do in Custer during my visit. Not to mention, he and Brandon have pinspired me to pursue van life part-time, and they have been providing me with helpful tips throughout my van search. Who would have thought so much could be achieved in one day? I highly recommend a visit to climb with them!

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.
