The excellent website inspired me to book the climbing day. Really, I was a bit nervous and didn't now what to expect... anyway, now I'm sure that the 4-5 hours with Wind River Climbing were just perfect. Very nice and empathic guide, short drive, gorgeous place and amazing sand rock. The 1-pitch routes were simply perfect for the time I had. I've learned new stuff about anchoring and climbing vocabulary. It was a lot of fun and still I'm proud having been the first European guest! To conclude: excellent choice, I'd book it again anytime and I warmly recommend it also to skilled climbers who like to get an insider view. Thanks!

Kyle was incredibly friendly and gave my buddy and I a full day of high quality guiding services. He was very good about catering to our needs. We wanted to get a bunch of routes in while also advancing our our knot tying/ anchor building technique and he created the perfect mix of the two. By the end of the day I had led my first climb and my buddy and I learned how to clean anchors. Safety was always a priority with him and I truly would recommend Wind River to any of my friends. Lander is beautiful and the climbing was superb and not busy at all. They are a small company that offers top notch individualized services! Would definitely recommend!!

I worked with Kyle to arrange a climbing trip for 13 folks (ages 5-40, climbing experience 0-lots) while travelling to Lander for a family event. Kyle and Becca went over an above our expectations, and ensured that every person had a safe, memorable, and amazing Sinks Canyon climbing experience! Their gear was high quality, well maintained, and nearly brand new! Plus they had and extensive array of shoe and harness sizes to fit everyone (not easy given the range of ages/sizes).

At the crag, they set up a variety of different routes to ensure everyone had climbs at the right level. Their instruction was spot on, and it was clear that safety was a priority while maximizing everyone's experience.

Following the climbing, Kyle patiently taught ~8 kids to rappel for the first time in their lives - their smiles were priceless. Meanwhile, for those of us who wanted to keep climbing, Becca set extra routes at higher levels to keep each individual challenged and engaged.

I look forward to returning to Lander and working with Kyle and Becca again!

I did a full day climb with Kyle. It was amazing. I've been climbing for about a year and a half, and Kyle was able to give me a ton of pointers on improving technique, confidence, and skill. Kyle was very accommodating (picked me up from the hotel, drove me to the climb area, etc.). Service was absolutely excellent. Once we made it to the wall, Kyle had planned out the routes we should try, coached me the entire time, and was extremely gracious and helpful. I will definitely be back for more. I can't recommend him highly enough. No matter your skill level, I'm sure that he will be able to assist you in improving your ability. Easy to schedule, easy to coordinate with, and easy to talk to. Thanks!
