My husband and I had a great time climbing at Red Rock. I am experienced in climbing, but had a bad ankle, and my husband had his first experience climbing here. I felt so good about the company when they were in constant contact for information. Since I did book kind of last minute, I was expecting much less than I got. I'm so happy with the company and guide. Glenda was really friendly, knowledgeable, and fun!

I would use this company in a heart beat if I go climbing in Vegas again! Loved it!

Everything was very well organized, and our guide, Jay was great. We did one of the popular peaks and Jay found a nice way around the crowds - we were there on Black Friday. Difficulty level was perfect for our climbing skills. Overall, we had exactly the kind of day and climbing experience that we wanted.

My daughter and I have climbed with these guys two summers in a row and have had great experiences. The first year we did a half day of climbing in the Taos Mountains and it was a great time. Jay, our guide, was really helpful and patient and really helped us improve our climbing skills in a short time. This was our first time climbing outdoors on REAL rocks and we loved it. The next year we came back for a full day of climbing near Sipapu resort. It was a beautiful, quiet place, very peaceful and beautiful. We spent the whole day tackling routes that were very challenging. I probably over stated our climbing abilities so we really struggled on some of the climbs but our guide was very patient and helpful. I really recommend these folks and climbing in northern New Mexico. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely do it again.

Mountain Skills set us up with an excellent guide, Dan Young. It is a little nerve racking to put your life in someone elses hands but I felt completely safe with our guide. He provided a great place to climb that challenged us at different skill levels within the group. We learned a lot and had fun. Thanks for the amazing experience.

We had a great time with our guide Dan Young at Red Rock Canyon, He was very focused on safety but never at the expense of a great climbing experience. He reviewed with us the equipment, and the dos and don'ts of how to use the gear. He provided suggestions on how to improve our climbing skills without handholding us up the rock face. I would definitely recommend this company and our guide Dan.
