My son is in love with rock climbing and joined an indoor climbing gym a couple years ago. We wanted to get outside and experience outdoor climbing, and this was a perfect opportunity to do that! He loved it! It was humbling for us all, as climbing out of doors was much more difficult than in a rock gym.

Joel and Diane were great guides!! I went with my mom for a girls weekend, and we had a blast rock climbing! This was our first time going and it was terrifying because I'm afraid of heights, but Joel and Diane never made us do more than we wanted to! They were very patient with us "noobs" and very friendly!

Our Boy Scout Troop participating in rock climbing at Devil's Lake State Park with Joel. We had an awesome time! Joel did a great job with instructing our scouts on proper procedures and everything. I would definately recommend Vertical Adventures Guides to anyone looking for a guided climbing experience.

We had caving adventure with Joel and Diane on Labor Day weekend. It was a great adventure! We never had that before. My son loves it! We would love to come back to do the rock climbing sometime. Jill

What an amazing weekend we had with you, Joel and Diane. You thought of EVERYTHING to make our weekend a great adventure. We loved the kayak trip and you were the best guides ever for us "first timers". Joel and Diane , you were the most gracious hosts at your lodge as well and made us feel like one of the family. Thanks for all the special touches, the delicious food, and most of all an adventure where we were safe during all the trips.

We had an amazing time at Devil's Lake. Joel and Diane were wonderful guides and had such great technical advice for our climbs. This was my first outdoor climbing experience and I can't wait to go again. Thank you both for making the best birthday weekend possible.
