Hubby and 2 kids (11 and 15) had the pleasure of embarking on this climbing adventure with Shankar as guide and they absolutely loved it! Shankar fueled the day w knowledge, humor, and enthusiasm! We will proudly display our Sylvan Rocks car stickers and make reservations to climb again ASAP! Next time they climb they get to go to even cooler climbing spots cuz they have done “climbing 101” already! Bring snacks and water!
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!
As a group of a 7 y/o who proved to be a bit afraid of climbing very high, an adult female who was afraid of heights, and 2 adult males (with slightly varying fitness abilities), all 4 of us had a great time. Our guide Brandon was extremely patient and able to challenge all of us and make us all feel like we really accomplished something! The area we climbed was challenging enough without being too challenging, and offered great views. None of us had ever rock climbed on real rocks before, but yet we felt extremely safe the whole time. As a company, they were extremely flexible with us making a last minute reservation. This is easily my number 1 suggestion for a thing to do while in the area!
