  • My family and I spent a morning with Clancy and Tim climbing the Kila Crags. It was an awesome experience both for my wife and I and our three kids (ages 10, 8 and 6)! We had no climbing experience going in; Clancy and Tim helped us learn and made us feel extremely safe. They were amazing with the kids. We would love to go again with them. Highly recommended!

  • Always professional, always personable, always safe, always considerate. They take the time to develop a plan with the client that creates a fun and challenging experience; also, they provide valuable teaching moments along the way. I look forward to using their services again.

    — Greg Cutcher
  • Awesome experience: great guide, fantastic routes, perfect location and nice weather. What more could you possibly wish for?

    — Oleg & Mariann Neverovitch
  • You guys were awesome. I would suggest you…to anyone and the climb was great. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever done.
