Intro to Rock Climbing with Valley to Summit on September 18, 2022. This was my second trip to Chickies Rock with VTS and it was wonderful! There were only 5 of us, so plenty of time to climb. Our Guide, Bob, was so patient, engaged and informative. I learned a lot of great things that I had not known before about clothing, ropes and technique. Bob was so patient with me and was there with his “ green pointer” to help me over the tough spots. You should know that I am 74 years old and tho I have climbed indoors for a few years, my stamina was not that of the youngsters who were there! Nonetheless, it was a great time! I highly recommend Valley to Summit, this being my 3 rd trip with them. They Rock!

This was my third excursion with Valley to Summit and definitely won't be my last! Every time I have such a great experience from start to finish! The scheduling and booking is easy, the cost is reasonable, and they are always professional and courteous. The adventures themselves are a blast! Every guide I've had makes the entire experience a ton of fun, but also completely safe so it's a relaxed environment. Love these guys!

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!!!
