Can I give it an rating higher than 5? They deserve it! There is so much to say about Nrocks, the views are breathtaking. I really don't think anyone would have any reason to complain about this. The staff was amazing and answered any and all questions. I climbed the Via and felt 100% safe at all times. My guide,... More

This zip line adventure was located at Timberline Four Season Resort but run by Nrocks. Family vacation of four including two boys 14 & 11. My first time zip lining however the boys have been several times. Needless to say I don't like heights either but felt very safe with the employees of Nrock. They suited us up, double checking...

This was an amazing experience. It is geared for those that have no experience to those that have climbed before. Great views and great guides. I would highly recommend the via ferratta.

We climbed the Via Ferrata with 4 adults and 7 teenagers on a lovely fall day (Oct 2015) and it was truly one of the best things I have done in a couple of years. I am not too thrilled with heights - but I felt safe the entire time (my heart was pounding on the bridge & at a... More

My teen sons and I can't say enough about the terrific time we had climbing the Via Ferrata at NRocks. What an outstanding experience. Our guides Matt & Garrett are well trained and true professionals. They have the perfect demeanor, leadership ability and knowledge to make climbers feel safe and secure. They're fun, good natured, light hearted and allow for... More

We went on the Via Ferrata which was an incredible experience. This is defiantly a must do bucket list adventure. A whole new world unfolds around every rock and your eyes can't open wide enough to take it all in. This trip will reveal the beauty behind the name, Almost Heaven West Virginia.

What an adrenaline pumping adventure the Via Ferrata is for someone who has never rock climbed before. Putting safety first, NROCKS has put together an awesome tour for the adventure junkie. My husband and I were two in a group of ten, with Nick and Tom as our guides (these guys are top-notch). The Via Ferrata is challenging physically but... More

My family of four did the full day rock climbing and had a great time! Our guide, Steve, was great! We felt very safe and learned so much. Steve let us plan much of the day and get in as much climbing and rappelling as possible - by the end of the day we were quite tired. We would love... More

I did the Via Feretta rock climbing trip on Sept 27 2015 with NROCKS. My group is small, only 3 people plus the guide. I stayed at their guest room the night before my climb (I opted for AM climb), and the room was comfortable and clean - it has one full bed, and two single beds. The bathroom is... More

Great folks, and worked with us on a change of plans from the via ferrata to the canopy tour. Facility was clean, guides were awesome, friendly, and knowledgeable about both their course and the surrounding area. Would definitely return.
