CLIMB  | SMARTER

CLIMB | HARDER

Since 1994 we've been mentoring climbers to help them expand their knowledge and become self-sufficient climbers at the New River Gorge and beyond.
We only offer private guiding and customized climbing instruction for beginner to advanced climbers looking to refine and advance their knowledge, gain experience, and understanding in all things climbing.

All of our guides and instructors are not only climbers to their core, they are also great people, and skilled teachers who can easily adapt to help you meet your goals. They're all trained and certified by the American Mountain Guide Association as Single Pitch Instructors (at minimum) and are dedicated professionals who take their job to teach you seriously.
We're headquartered in Water Stone Outdoors, your one-stop climbing shop at the New. The shop is open year-round, and the guide service operates seasonally from March to November (or whenever winter sets in).
 
Check out a few of our suggested trip offerings below, but we are always more than happy to create a customized trip for you.
