We chose to rock climb as a family of four last minute and we're so glad we did. It was one of the highlights of our South Dakota trip. Daryl found us a guide who was personable and patient. My 5 and 7 year old were able to climb 15 and 30 foot cliffs and my wife and I found the climbs exhilarating and fun. The price was reasonable and it fit well into a day trip to Custer State Park.

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 husband and I used Sylvan Rocks climbing school for a lesson at Palisades State Park. We had limited climbing experience, but our instructor, Jeff, did an amazing job. My husband and I had different comfort levels on the rocks, but Jeff was still able to keep us both engaged. He pushed our limits without making us feel uncomfortable. Jeff's passion for the sport is evident and only surpassed by his passion to teach it. You 'rock' Jeff 😁! I cannot recommend enough!
