Josie was seriously the best guide we could've asked for! My partner and I had taken up climbing (in a gym) about 2 weeks prior and really wanted to experience outdoor climbing before winter sets in where we live (in the northeast). We decided to take a 2-day intro to outdoor climbing lesson with WRCG and couldn't be happier with the experience. Josie made us feel super comfortable and safe while getting a feel for the rock and gave us so many awesome tips for when we're out climbing on our own eventually. We were pretty physically wiped on the second day but she was accommodating and took the opportunity to educate us on safety, anchor tying, and everything in between, which was exactly what we needed. Wild Iris is a gorgeous spot and we were really glad it was where we had our first outdoor climbing experience! If you're on the fence, definitely just do it - you won't regret it!

If you are looking for a rock climbing course and expert guide service look no more! My wife and I spent 2-days sport climbing with Kyle (the co-owner) and couldn't be more satisfied with our experience. The great experience started from the minute I called him and began explaining what we were hoping to accomplish during the course. He helped to refine my expectations while affirming the possibility of walking away from the course with a solid base in sport climbing (Note: I had top-roped a few times before and spent a little time in the gym). My initial excitement and feeling of confidence in finding a great course/guide was only solidified and amplified once the course began. Kyle has a refreshingly organic and experientially focused teaching style. He does a great job building relationships over the course that increase the effectiveness of his teaching. I also really appreciated that throughout the course he would touch base to make sure we were covering things that were important to us while also providing expert guidance on where we could go to develop our skills. Finally, I was grateful for Kyle's ever attentive eye to safety and mitigating the inherent risk with climbing. He did a great job of teaching us what right looks like! My wife and I finished the course with so many new skills and had an amazing experience. I give Kyle and Wind River Climbing Guides my highest recommendation! I would choose them again in a heartbeat.

Kyle, our guide, was fantastic!! Such an easy trip ... Met at the park and headed out to the climbing spot, Sinks Canyon. Although he gave us quite a few options to choose from. It was a great day!! We would highly recommend to all in Lander!

Booked a half-day climb for the kids (ages 10,14,16) as we were passing thru the area. Communication prior was great - no issues. Becca met us on time at the park and off we went. A short drive to the canyon, quick hike, and within a few minutes, she was setting routes and instructing. Becca was FANTASTIC! Completely laid back, yet extremely professional. Great with the kids and their various level of climbing enthusiasm. Would highly recommend! Becca - if you get to Devil's Lake, WI... Avery wants to meet up!
