Client Reviews

Here are some examples of unsolicited testimonials we have received lately, both by mail and online. Our goal is to provide the best experience possible for our clients, and we are sure you will be just as happy as these folks: Oh, in case you are wondering why David gets so much mail, we have three guides named David or Dave šŸ™‚

What a great two and a half days we had with our guide Derrick! These guided trips met all of our expectations and then some! We learned so much and will rebook with your group in the near future specifically because of the high quality of our guide. We will of course request our guide again if he is available. I can't say enough positive things! Thank you for a wonderful introduction to climbing. We're hooked.

I just wanted to thank you. I can't say enough about the experience I had out in Smith. You have an excellent guide, not only in ability to read the park and assign proper/challenging routes but in climber education as well. I had a great time, plan on coming back and will without question and will tell anyone climbing in your area that SRCG is the only guide service to call.

Jeremy

I just wanted to thank you, had a fantastic day yesterday. Taylor was a great guide, I was really impressed, everything was very professional, so I felt real comfortable with him leading, so tell him thanks again. I'll be sure to spread the word.

Adam

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated Derrick. He was a fabulous guide and worked so hard to create a fun experience for Anna and me. He is clearly gifted at what he does and we so enjoyed our time with him.
