My family and I travel the US to climb indoors and outdoors. We had heard so many amazing things about climbing at Devil's Lake that we wondered if it could live up to the hype. Well, Devil's Lake did, thanks to our guide Lynn. The rock was amazing purple quartzite, the guide led us right to the types of climbs... More

We went half-day climbing with Caleb while my husband took the weekend anchors course. It was nothing short of spectacular. He engaged both of my children (10 & 12) to a level no guide has done before or since. He took us out on the southeast trek, and the views and climbing were fantastic. If you have kids, ask for...

My 18-year old son and I signed up with Apex for a half day climb. Lynn was our instructor and she was fantastic! I told her about our previous climbing experience - beginner to intermediate level - and she set climbs that were perfectly suited for us. We had a fun, challenging day! I highly recommend Apex!

We spent the weekend at Devils Lake learning to outdoor rock climb with Apex. We took a half day private lesson with Lynn on Saturday and followed it up with a full day group climb with Lynn and Sam on Sunday. This was our first experience outdoor climbing and absolutely loved it! Apex taught us so much in two days.... More

Took the anchors course with Lynn and learned so much. I had a great time and now feel comfortable and knowledgeable enough to set my own anchors and climb on them.

When I think back about our summer, our rock climbing trip was the highlight. We camped at the Double K-D ranch with a few families and climbed with Lynn and Garrett. They made everything simple, easy, safe, and just a blast! I loved the bonding that formed from the person belaying and the person climbing. It was parents helping children... More

Second time using Apex Adventures to rock climb in the Devils Lake area, fantastic time yet again. Jill was amazing and makes any beginner climber feel comfortable out there on the rocks. Can't wait to come back!

Lynn and Hannah provided my daughter's scout troop a wonderful day of climbing. They were patient, fun and safe while teaching all the novice climbers what they needed to be successful. Lynn knows these routes well and provided those with a little experience the coaching to climb more difficult approaches than we thought possible. Everyone left with a great sense... More

My family went to Devils Lake with three other families for a day of rock climbing. Kids ranged from 11-17. Parents also joined in the fun. Lynn and staff at Apex were great. Safety was #1 priority, followed by ensuring fun and sense of accomplishment. When we go back, we will be contacting Apex.
