Trip: A Day in the Dells | Private

Guide: Alex T.

Alex was our guide for a private 6 hour trip A Day in the Dells. Alex was amazing! He was super knowledgeable and helpful. He climbed along side us and coached us as we were climbing up to help us. He took a bunch of awesome pictures for us from the wall. We had two separate climbing locations and several different climbing routes of different ability levels. The routes were challenging but fun! The whole experience was amazing! Thank you Alex!

Trip: A Pleasant Day in the Pines | Private

Guide: Alex T.

My teenage twins were confident about their gym climbing skills and this afternoon trip with GMG was the perfect adventure to connect them to outdoor climbing. We felt challenged and safe throughout the day. Alex provided some great insight for taking the next step in climbing and for outdoor careers. This was a perfect father/son adventure. Thank you!

Trip: Prescott | Introduction to Rock Climbing - Private

Guide: Morgan M.

Our trip with Granite Mountain was awesome, and our guide Morgan was phenomenal! We climbed in the Dells at Watson lake, a truly beautiful location. Morgan set up a ton of routes for us and taught us so much. We had a blast, strongly recommend, and would love to do it again!

Trip: Prescott | Introduction to Lead Climbing

Guide: Alex T.

My goal in taking this course was to learn how to safely and reliably lead a climb, make and anchor, and clean without relying on others to know this knowledge. I walked away with all the tools needed. Alex was a great guide and teacher. He took the time to thoroughly explain what we were doing, made time for questions, and made sure everyone understood before moving on. He started with the fundamentals and by the end of the day we had put everything together that we had learned.

Trip: A Day in the Dells

Guide: Alex T.

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!

If you are someone that has any interest at all in Rock Climbing or if you are a rock climber this is something you don’t want to miss. What this trip was a trip of a life time!!!! Something that I will do as many times as they offer it. This was the absolute best experience so well run. These women are so incredibly talented and bend over backwards to make sure you are getting the most and best instruction possible. Life altering trip will stay with me forever.
