We are Floridians and two of us are very afraid of heights however we had an amazing time! Our guide Anthony was top notch for sure. His knowledge seemed endless not only about climbing and the area but in general. I can not thank him enough for trying to always get us to the top of the climb even though... More

The trip was AMAZING! Our guide, Mike, was unbelievably patient and supportive, providing enough challenge that we felt we actually accomplished something! I will definitely plan to use them in the near future. I love that we can start relatively inexperienced, with exception of some indoor climbing, and work our way up to more difficult climbs with this company. The... More

My husband and I always like to do something adventurous for our anniversary so we picked rock climbing this year and we were not disappointed! Being first time climbers, we were a little nervous, but our guide, Travis, was awesome. He was very professional and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The view from Looking Glass... More

Great day. Travis put me on easy friction routes at LG rock to help me during my continuing recovery from a serious illness. It was so good to revisit slabs after 20 years or so. An A+ guiding day for FMG.

Planned a fun girls weekend to Brevard and Ashville. When my friend asked how adventurous I was...typically not very! She made reservations with Fox Mountain Guides. Upon arrival, we met with Christian. He was new to the area, just arriving three weeks earlier. Christian was very well educated and really knew his stuff! He really taught us so much such... More

What an amazing day! My friend and I went on a full day climb with Mike from Fox Mountain Guides. He was a fabulous instructor…knowledgeable, fun, encouraging and so patient in teaching us and ensuring our safety as this was our first outdoor climb! We went to Looking Glass and are so glad that we chose to do the full... More

I did a day of private guiding with Joel from Fox Mountain Guides and couldn't have been more impressed. Joel was the consummate professional, meticulously attentive to ensuring safety, and was kind, courteous, knowledgeable, and very effective and patient in clearly explaining new concepts to me. It was an amazing day! Highly recommend FMG!

We had a great time climbing at Chimney Rock with Fox Mountain guide Doug! He coached and challenged us building our comfort level and skill. I wish I were there today!

I intended the 'Multi-pitch Efficiency' clinic at the Red River Gorge Rocktoberfest in October, with an instructor from Fox Mountain Guides. Overall, our group found the clinic very helpful and enjoyable. As someone who had recently gotten into multi-pitch trad I was quickly learning that efficiency was critical both for enjoyment and safety and that different climbing areas would pose... More

I've been trying to up my multi-pitch trad climbing game. I hired Cody @ fox mountain guides to teach me and coach me on my climbing. I probably learned more in one day of climbing with Cody then I have in the past four years of climbing with other folks or other classes. Cody is a super professional and super... More
