For the complete novice student or the experienced climber who requires additional training, New River Mountain Guides offers the full spectrum of climbing instruction.


All of our courses are arranged at your convenience, allowing us to customize the course based on your background and long-term goals. This personalized learning experience gives you the flexibility to learn at a pace that is comfortable for you, at a time that works with your schedule. 


Your instructors are accomplished climbers and patient teachers, who are AMGA CERTIFIED SINGLE PITCH INSTRUCTORS and Wilderness First Responders. To us, climbing isn't just something we do, it's who we are.

The New River Gorge is a world-class climbing destination and we are fortunate to have such an awesome classroom. There are miles of bullet-hard sandstone cliffs in the Tri-Gorge area (New River, Meadow River, and Summersville Lake) to hone your climbing skills on. It's the perfect destination to:

  • Transition to Outdoor Climbing

  • Learn how to lead sport and trad climbs

  • Learn gear placement and anchor building

  • Refine multi-pitch systems and transitions

  • Practice self-rescue and assistance skills


We are headquartered upstairs in Water Stone Outdoors, one of the best-stocked climbing shops you'll ever set foot into. It's a gear lovers' dream come true. You can find anything you could ever want from hardware, climbing shoes, camping equipment, outdoor apparel, and tons more.


All NRMG clients enjoy a 10% discount on the day of their trip. We are a one-stop shop, where you can buy the gear and learn how to use it from certified climbing instructors and knowledgeable staff.
