Our guide Cole, was awesome! Our two kids aged 21 and 18 had very limited experience in rock climbing. Cole was very friendly, knowledgeable and personable.
His experience as a climber and as a guide was greatly appreciated
We would HIGHLY recommend this guide and this company
Great value when visiting the Springs area

Cole was an excellent teacher and guide. We switched from Garden of the Gods to Cheyenne Park because of the weather and it was a great experience. Our party of athletes and non-athletes felt very safe and secure and he was very encouraging to help us get to the top. It was a highlight of our weekend in Colorado Springs.

Booked a half day, due to an u expected clerical error we had some miscommunication about our guide. Called the office and the manager immediately got us in contact and not only took care of the issue he did everything and beyond to make it right. Our guide Cole was very knowledgeable and as first time climbers gave us an awesome experience, if every guide at this company is like Cole, I can confidently say this is the best company to climb with. Could not speak any higher of this companies’ commitment to the customer and them having an awesome experience.

Awesome family rock climbing experience with Nathan. Nathan was a great guide and gave us the training and confidence to complete several different climbs. It was cool having non-climbers watch from the pathways and clap when you climb to the top! It was the highlight of our trip to CO. Will definitely be back and try some harder climbs next time!

I don't even know where to begin. First the booking process was very simple. My guide,Jim, called me the day prior to finalize any last minute details. We met up in the parking lot and I got fitted for my shoes and harness. Without hesitation or wasting time we started the first climb. Throughout the different climbs he saw where my limitations were and pushed me to get past them. I do have some indoor climbing experience but this was a whole new level of fun and excitement. Jim was also extremely knowledgeable about the history of the park and the formations. I can not recommend this company and Jim enough and if it could give them a higher score than a 5 I would. Next time I am out here I plan on going out again and hitting a different location.

My husband and I along with our two children (10 and 12) booked a 1/2 day of rock climbing in Garden of the Gods. Our guide, Dan, was fabulous in all regards - knowledgeable, kind, encouraging, personable... Despite everyone having a few moments of trepidation, we all ended up having and amazingly fun, exhilarating experience.

This was our first climbing experience. The climb was intimidating at first, but after the first or second climb, you start to get a feel for where your hands need to be placed as well as placing your feet in places that you think wouldn't provide a grip. When you come down the climb, trust your guide, they have you. If you need to rest mid-climb let them know, your guide will keep you "tight". We also repelled after one of our climbs which was exciting. We did the half day (4hr) and our upper body and lower body (especially the calves) was sore. We started at 2pm and the shining of the sun and clear skies made this climb an incredible experience. Our guide, Leila was very informative and was able to answer all our questions. Down to earth and very passionate about the job. Would do this again.

Our guide, Jeff, was absolutely incredible. He has a real passion for the sport of rock climbing and that passion is infectious. Hr also provided a lot of the history of the area which, as a former high school history teacher, I especially appreciated.

We were relative newbies as this was only our third climb, but Jeff was extremely patient and encouraging. He’s a natural teacher who also taught us how to use all the gear, how to tie proper knots, and the correct way to belay.

The experience itself was also amazing. Our group had the opportunity to make 5-6 different climbs. High quality gear was also provided by the company.

We can’t recommend this company in general, and Jeff specifically, highly enough!

We LOVED our private guided climbing experience in the central garden at the Garden of the Gods. Our guide, Jameson, was knowledgeable, experienced, fun, safe, and all around great. We climbed with our two boys- age -13 and 11 and the routes Jameson selected were perfect. He was quick and efficient at set up, encouraging and positive. If you have interest in climbing, need a guide, or want to learn- we highly recommend!

Booked a single climber 4 hour session at the Garden of the Gods. I’m not a very experienced climber and it was only my second time outdoor climbing so I was a little nervous but Nathan made me feel very safe comfortable the entire time. Learned some new belaying and rappelling techniques as well! Would highly recommend even if you’re new to climbing. Only thing I would do differently is I would have my friend stick around to take photos of me (she dropped me off at the parking lot.) Totally possible for non-climbing companion to come with.
