  • This is the best rock climbing trip.  Our family has never been rock climbing and our instructor was fun and completely entertained our teenagers.  They were able to learn at their rate while Mom and Dad  were able to take it easier.  I would definitely recommend that every family experience rock climbing together.

  • I have primarily climbed out west but all my friends kept telling me to try the New River Gorge. This place is totally awesome and my new rock climbing home. Even though I have lots of experience climbing in the Rockies the guides were able to show me a thing or two. These guys know their stuff.
