Trip: A Day in the Dells

With Alex T. on April 16, 2022

Company: Granite Mountain Guides, LLC

Alex was an amazing guide! His knowledge and positive energy made for a successful and memorable day for the whole family. He customized the climbing to suit our different levels of experience and even included a repel at the end of the day which was a new experience for the boys. The gear was all new and top quality - no complaints. Couldn't have asked for a better guide or experience!
