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.
Ross was our guide and he did an awesome job showing us the basics of rock climbing and making the whole group comfortable with what we were about to do. Overall just a cool guide! Very pleased with the customer service and clear communication from the Sylvan Rocks team. 10/10 would recommend to new and experienced climbers.
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!
