From booking to walking out after the climbs the entire experience exceeded our expectations. Communication with Brandon and our guide Jeff was prompt, informative, they were on top of everything! The climb was a surprise gift for my husband and they worked with me to keep it that way. Jeff was communicating the day before regarding questions about the climb and the day of the climb for weather updates. Safety is their number one priority. As a novice to climbing the instructions were clear, concise and going in Jeff had a plan, but also fluid with options. He was full of answers to all my questions and informed about Palides climbs. He provided excellent feedback with climbing technique, suggestions on how to move during the climb. Overall outstanding experience and can’t wait to climb with him again!

My grandson (14) and son (43) climbed with a large group ranging from 5-50. Guided by Ryan, Bears and James we had a great time. Excellent safety and introductory instruction, then six different rope climbs under their guidance and encouragement. Both of my “sons” were excited and really got the hang of it quickly. Everyone in the group got to climb to their capacity. We recommend Sylvan Rocks whole heartedly!

We had a fabulous time climbing with Chris this morning. He was very helpful and informative yet allowed us to have some independence in the climb. We had the opportunity to make 6 climbs each and enjoyed every one of them period this was definitely 1 of the highlights of our trip.

My daughter and I were first time climbers and chose the 8 hour adventure package. Zayne was an amazing guide! After a initial lesson on a lower formation the day was off and running. We were able to squeeze every bit of climbing out of our 8 hours, Zayne gave us every opportunity to learn and try new skills as the day went on. 4 crags and 7 pitches in all. The day exceeded our lofty expectations! Thank you Zayne and Sylvan Rocks.

Climbing the tower after not climbing for a few years was a challenge, but Shankar was calm, confident and a good teacher. Had a wonderful experience. I hope I can do this again sometime!
