We were very happy with our intro to rock climbing!! Our 15 and 17 year old both had a fantastic time. They achieved their goals, conquered fears, and had fun! Plus, it was incredibly bonding for them and that is possibly the best part! The guides are amazing. Very knowledgeable, encouraging, patient and just overall fantastic people! This is our third trip with alley to summit and we will be going on more for sure!!!

Chadd and Jake, our guides, were very detailed with their instruction and very attentive during climbing. I am 70 yrs old and climb with my 10 year old grandson. I am extremely attentive to safety and risk for us both. I feel safe and secure with these expert guides snd this wonderful organization

Dave and Chad have a great way of interacting with all ages and providing support, encouragement and challenge to each participant. We did 2 back to back trips, added a couple people the 2nd time and were not disappointed. Safety is a priority as well as fun! Thanks, V2S!

David and Chadd were absolutely excellent in helping us seniors (age 74) get to the top of Chickies Rock 3 times each! They gave encouragement, support, suggestions, and help and celebrated with us when we succeeded beyond anyone's expectations. I would recommend them to anyone, regardless of ability or age, as they can help everyone achieve some goal that they had never thought possible before. They adjust to your ability and help create an achievable challenge that leaves you feeling amazingly capable of anything. You can trust them 100% to make this experience safe and beyond your wildest dream of a bucket list. This is our second time with these instructors, and we will be back!

David and Chad were great guides for our outdoor adventure .. they helped our kids, 12-14 years old, so they were confident and felt safe during rock climbing and kayaking! They made the planning easy, flexible to meet our needs, and it was overall, an excellent experience! We will definitely be back!!
