Very professional and safety oriented, our guide Anselm immediately assessed our abilities and tailored climbs so that we were challenged. We chose a 1/2 day experience climb, which allowed for five separate courses. We would definitely do this again!

Thanks to Eli and the rest of the ACS staff this old rock climber got the chance of a lifetime to climb Otter Cliffs in Acadia National Park!!! It was an amazing climb and something I will never forget!! Check one off of the old bucket list!!! If you ever get the chance, go climbing with these people! They are amazing, they know what they are doing, and you will never have to say "well I could have climbed at Otter Cliffs but I didn't. Wish I had"!!!!

Eli runs a great business. He was so safe and concerned about our experience and our care as we repelled over the ocean.

Grant took us climbing on the south bubble. He was great. Safe experienced climber and made us feel safe. We (2 adults and 3 teen kids) were able to climb about 4 places and then repell down to our waiting gear. Great Time!!

This was my first Rock/Mountain Climbing experience, and I must say, I was in good hands.
well, the guides were well experienced. They was quick to suggest us some of the locations based on our experience level but did not limit us once they tested our physical capability after the initial climb.
They was also willing to give is the introductory, beginners lesson on how to use some of the the equipment (even though most of it was being harnessed and installed by them) and also get familiar with the ropes and other gear which looks dainty but is very strong.
Thanks guys for a great experience.
