Intro to Outdoor Climbing Reviews:

“I chose to do the Intro to Outdoor Climbing class and absolutely loved it! Dan, my guide, was very informative and a great teacher. He helped me figure out what I was comfortable with, made me feel safe and secure and got me super stoked for more outdoor climbing in the future! I would highly recommend using DCC for anyone looking to go on a fun adventure.”

“One of the best guides that I have had in all areas of outdoor travel. He was confident, knowledgeable, patient, and had a good sense of humor for this New Jersey traveler.”

“We had such a great time climbing! My brother and boyfriend were terrified but our guide, Dan made us all feel safe! We were complete beginners and all of us were able to climb to the top of at least one of the climbs. Dan did a wonderful job accommodating all of our needs as he provided me with a more challenging climb after I completed the first one. It was so much fun and I would definitely do this again!”

Had a great time on Intro to Climbing with Dan and Brett. They showed us the ropes (pun intended) and gave great encouragement. Beautiful location and would definitely recommend the experience. We’re in our 50’s and had solid climbs but there were younger people there too … that kept up with us :-)”
