Great beginners experience

Adam and his mate Siem are both lovely and speak decent English (rare in vangvieng). Tough climbs but enjoyed it. Good break from the perpetual drinking in the town.

We had a fantastic day climbing with Adam's Rock Climbing School. Our guide was Hop and he was great - a skilled climber and an excellent teacher. The location was unbelievable, truly spectacular. We loved every minute of the day and found it to be the best climbing we have ever done. If you want a perfect day out, go... More

I only went to rent some gear from the shop, but was really impressed by the attitude and helpfulness of the staff. The gear and courses were all fairly priced and the staff were willing to go above and beyond to help my friends and I. Even throwing in an extra harness so three of us could climb for the... More

As an absolute beginner I was invited to join the small group. As I want to give up, the tutor ( not Adam self ) cheered me and gave me a courage to try, so that at last I could win myself. I could say it was a great fun and it was a one most great experience in my... More

We had good fun doing the one day climbing course. I gave it 3 stars because of the climbing shoes we got. They were not in a good shape and there were not so many pairs to choose from. This was a bit disappointing since the shoes are very important and I expect more from the first and most famous... More

Adam and his team are really welcoming and experienced climbers. We rented all the complete gear to enjoy a full day climbing. We were worried about the weather conditions (rain all the morning) but Adam knows some perfect dry places to enjoy as much as possible even if it's raining. Such a good experience!! Thank you Adam!!

Although I'm a really experience climber, I booked a tour at Adams. So that I didn't had to look for a climbing mate. The guide was good. He definitely know how to belay. The safety was like European standards. The rock was great, they have a lot of different grades. I think between 5a and 7b (French). Everything is bolted... More

We booked a full days rock climbing for 280,000kip each and it was well worth it. Our instructor was called Tang and was very friendly and a very good teacher. The rock climbing takes place in a corridor in between two huge rocks, each with numerous climbs up them, from easy beginner climbs to some very hard ones. This means... More

I went climbing with Xien (one of Adams guides) yesterday and ha a great time. The routes we went to are a short drive from town and are covered from rain and sun, so it's perfect for any weather. Xien was a friendly, smiley guy and our group was fun. A good mix of graded climbs, from 5a up to... More

We did the full day climbing, and it was just great. To a non experianced eyes they seemed professional and the gear was good. Take the full day, as in the first half day you are just getting the hang of things, and really start the hard climbing in the second half day. It was beautifull and great fun.
