My husband and I grabbed the opportunity for a full day excursion at Devil's Lake. We'd never been to the park nor climbed before, and both were incredible. As complete novices, Matt was patient with us while we figured out the ropes (literally) and provided a lot of great entertainment even though I was quite nervous. As I slowly climbed... More

Matt did a great job of tailoring our experience to suit our skill level and my fears! He was encouraging and helpful! I highly recommend Adventures in Climbing and Matt.....it was the perfect first climbing experience!

My brother and I spent a great day climbing with Matt in Devil's Lake, WI. We came in with different levels of experience, and Matt knew the perfect set of routes to make sure we both had fun and also got to challenge ourselves. I really liked that he led most of the routes instead of just top roping us.... More

I run an Adventure Therapy program, Chicago Adventure Therapy. Matt and his crew were the climbing guides for our staff training, and then for a program with the Junior Counselors from a summer camp we work with. Their deep knowledge of the sport and associated safety awareness was superb. They were also approachable and engaging. We're always happy with the... More

I met some folks from a rock climbing group online in the Midwest who were all getting folks together to go climb the Devils Tower, WY. I chose to go, however, I just started climbing and was far from experienced while everyone else was. One of guys in the group suggested I get a guide and see how I do.... More

Our family of four did the Devil's Lake rock climbing adventure. What a great way to spend time with your kids! Never having done this before, I would say it was challenging. Our daughters are 11 and 13 and they would do it again in a heartbeat, much easier for them! It looked impossible to see the wall of granite... More

I recently went Rick climbing with three other beginning rock climbers through Adventures in Climbing! Although a challenge for newbies, I cannot say enough great things about our guide, Matt, and the experience he gave us! He was continuously encouraging, flexible, and extremely personable! To put up with four ladies that have never done it, he made us all feel... More

What an amazing day rock climbing! We had a group of four beginners and Matt took us to Cleopatra’s Needle in Devils Lake state park. It was a fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in having some fun! Matt was easygoing and very knowledgeable about climbing, making what appeared to be a difficult task a piece of... More

We had a great day climbing at Devils Lake - a first for almost our entire group, and definitely a completely different experience than the colored handholds and gym atmosphere that we were all familiar with. The half day package was just enough for our group of four to each tackle two different climbs - a perfect introduction to the... More

We had 2 children with us (6 & 8) and Matt was so kind and patient with everyone. Even when we wanted to quit mid climb he let us take a break and keep going up. We felt completely safe the entire time. We will be back (without the 6 year old....she was more worried about slugs and spiders). Our... More
