Left to Right: Olivia, Kris, Cody, Jason & Creed

A good adventure/climbing guide should be safe, knowledgable, and professional, as well as engaging and fun.  Our crew checks all the boxes.  They all have a wonderful way of pushing without being pushy and encouraging our guests to spend time in the outdoors doing things they didn’t know they could do.  They love what they do and it is reflected in the way they share that passion with others.  Come see what all the fuss is about…
