Bob and Eric were absolutely fantastic. We booked a private climb for me and my family for late in the afternoon in Joshua Tree. When we arrived Bob and Eric had the ropes already set up in a shaded area based on our experience. We were beginners so the climbs which challenging, but with their instruction we were all able...

I joined a group of three other students for an Anchors class, held in Joshua Tree. Our guide Tony was exceptional. He did a masterful job of combining discussion, observation, and practice - letting us use trial and error to ensure that we really did understand the materials he presented. He also tailored the class to fit the wishes of... More

Absolutely terrific climbing lesson and one of the best values in Joshua Tree! I took a 1/2 day, 2-person intermediate rock climbing lesson with Chris. He was clearly very knowledgable and proficient in the field, making the choice to be a full time-guide as a second career. My partner and I were VERY impressed with his guiding (and plentiful jokes).... More

My 17 year old son had a really enjoyable time with instructor, Chris who was friendly, informative, fun and an excellent teacher. Vertical Adventures was fine experience from the initial booking to the last step of the climb.

My first outdoor climb as only gym indoor taught climber. Dave was the best lead climber and guide. he taught me more about foot work, and weight shifts in the half day trip than I had learnt over the whole year previously. lots of variety in the climbs well worth the cost. action packed day and adrenalin rush.thanks heaps.

I signed our two teenage grandchildren(girl, age 14; boy, 16) up for a day climbing experience. They are athletic and both have experience with indoor wall climbing, but nothing like this. The instructor, Erik Kramer-Webb, was excellent. He explained each point, eg how to tie the knot, the exact safety points, very carefully and then had each one do the... More
