New River Mountain Guides

About Us

5.0 (15 reviews)

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 offer private guiding and customized instruction for beginner to advanced climbers, who want to expand their knowledge, learn new skills, and gain experience to help reach their climbing goals.

All of our guides and instructors are not only climbers to their core, they are fun to climb with, and are skilled teachers who can help you meet your climbing 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 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).

Trip: Half Day Private Instruction

We had a blast with Jordan. He was professional and fun to hang out with. He set up top rope for us, and took amazing photos while we climbed! We also had another great half-day session with Jeff. Highly recommend NRMG!

Trip: Half Day Private Instruction

Guide: Mary K.

Our trip exceeded all our expectations!! We had Jeff on day 1 where we learned the crucial things needed for safe and successful outdoor climbs- including an intro to the Warriors way approach to climbing/lead climb/catch and fall. Day 2 we had Jordan who’s stoke meter is off the charts and we got to lead our first climb outdoors at the New. Only 2 days but jam packed with action, learning, climbs and awesome instructors. Couldn’t have been more thankful and psyched!!

We had a GREAT time with Jordan and loved climbing with him - our first time at the New, and 2 of our party's first time outdoors! We'll be back, ready to tackle the next challenge, in the spring!

Trip: Full Day Private Instruction

Guide: Tim L.

My niece and I had virtually a perfect day climbing with Tim and are so glad we got a guide to help us start transitioning to some trad climbing after doing sport climbs together. He did a superb job getting us warmed up and figuring out just how much to challenge us and what we needed to get going with gear selection and proper placement. I highly recommend using him, and we want to hire him again!

Trip was excellent as always with Jordan, this was our third time out with him. We ran into several climbers at our local gym while out and several of them reached out to us afterwards requesting the contact information to hire Jordan. Thank you once again for a wonderful experience

Guide: Tim L.

Tim nailed the objective of my instructional day, he picked the appropriate terrain and routes to maximize the learning experience for me. Tim provided me with valuable tips that will help me to continue my development as a rock climber and did an amazing job managing time, risk and the obstacles that the weather presented. Thanks for the great experience.

Trip: Half Day Private Instruction

Guide: Jordan R.

I booked a half day climbing experience through New River Mountain guides. I am a relatively new climber and was a little apprehensive about climbing this challenging site that Jordon chose. I was immediately put at ease as Jordon proved to be not only an experienced international climber but also a fantastic teacher. He was able to quickly assess my climbing skills and give constructive suggestions to improve my technique. His great personality and professionalism exceeded my expectations
