Our 17 year old has climbed RRG with school and wanted to try again. Luck of the draw got us Travis as his guide. Travis brought just the right amount of experience and patience to handle a teenager, and was able to guide, teach and...More

I hate heights! So why would I subject myself to the terror of rock climbing? Call me stupid. Better yet, call me lucky and exhilarated. What a blast! Matt and Amy (two of the guides) were great. They explained everything and took away the fear....More

One of the few via ferratas in the United States, this is a unique experience. The site is a horseshoe shaped canyon, unlike more wild and wide open via ferratas I have done elsewhere. There are 5-6 somewhat self-contained sections, graded for difficulty much like...More

Add me to the long list of satisfied customers!! Although I arrived in mid afternoon, I had plenty of time to complete course 3 (intermediate) and course 4 (advanced). The only reason I didn’t continue was because I thought I should take it easy on...More

This adventure was worth every penny. Incredible fun and a workout all in one. The words "easiest" and "easy" to define courses 1 and 2 are relative. They're by no means easy, and you definitely get high up. That being said my wife and I...More

I had a really wonderful, full-blown climbing experience here! I wasn't really sure of what to expect but had hoped I'd be able to get inspired to get back into climbing again. Thomas was an excellent guide- incredibly knowledgeable and patient with me. He didn't...More
