Myself (40 years old), teenage son, and teenage nephew did the 6 Hour Rock Climbing Course. We had no prior rock climbing experience. Let me say this, it was absolutely the best part of our trip! We met Darryl at the Sylvan Rocks Climbing Trailer. He was very nice, easy to talk to. After a few minutes of talking and getting our waivers taken care of, Darryl introduced us to our guide, Chris. Chris was very nice and very professional. After introductions, Chris got us fitted for our harness, shoes, and helmet. He gave us an overview of what we could expect for the day. After a short hike to the climbing site, Chris gave us a thorough introduction to climbing (securing the ropes, using the shoes for friction, rappelling, etc.). Before each climb, Chris explained the climb/ route and asked if we thought we were up to it. The climbs were tough and strenuous, exactly what we wanted. We wanted a challenge and we got it. Chris was there the entire time to give us help and coach us along. He answered any questions we had. At no time did we feel unsafe or in danger, even though we were 200 feet in the air on top of Old People's Dome. Awesome climb and view! During our vacation, we went whitewater rafting, ziplining, hiking, caverns, and a lot more. The rock climbing was hands down the most fun. As a 40 year old, it was very rewarding when I made it to the top of the climb and also being able to keep up with 2 teenagers. If you are looking for adventure, excitement, and a challenge, you have to go rock climbing, and Sylvan Rocks Climbing is PERFECT! I could go on all day about our trip. We will definitely be back to climb again. One piece of advice to save time, print your waivers online and have them filled out when you arrive. Thanks to Chris, Darryl, and the rest of the crew at Sylvan Rocks Climbing, we will be seeing you all again!
