Exactly what we were looking for
Sep. 2021
My climbing partner and I were looking for a multi-pitch sport climbing workshop. Russ took us exactly where we were in terms of knowledge, so all the time we had was used to learn new skills and put them into practice. Russ was very clear and thorough. Look no further: he is the guide you need in Skaha. We had a great time!

Highlight of our trip out west
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Highlight of our trip out west. Russ was patient, sweet, full of knowledge and a great instructor. My partner and I were so grateful that we got to spend the day with someone who had a huge hand in developing the Skaha bluffs park itself and such an impressive climbing career. We very much enjoyed his stories, guidance, encouragement and had a beautiful day climbing with Russ. He made the experience easy and took care of all the logistics. I would highly recommend Skaha rock adventures to anyone looking for a unique experience. We were beginner climbers and went very much at our own pace and felt extremely comfortable.

Multi Pitch Sport Climbing Course
Aug. 2021 • Friends
Russ was an incredible guide. The course was exactly what we were looking for and was very thorough. He tailored the course to our needs, targeting the skills we wanted to learn and filling in any gaps on ones we already had. The day was paced very well with frequent check ins.

We will be recommending Skaha Rock Adventures to all of our friends and hope to come back to take a trad course in the future.

A fun experience with a friendly guide
Aug. 2021
We had a great experience climbing at Skaha with Russ this summer. Both of us had only climbed outdoors once before (also with Russ about 10 years ago), so it was a great reintroduction. Russ was really encouraging and knowledgeable, and took the time to customize the day to what we were looking for - we learned a lot and had a fun day climbing and rappelling!

Outstanding experience, not to be missed!
Aug. 2021
Top notch experience. Russ is a thorough, knowledgeable guide and it was a privilege to have his legendary experience to guide us through our adventure. He is responsible for the creation and maintenance of many routes in the area, so you wont find a better person to guide you. At the end of the day not only did I have a blast, but was very confident in the skills I had learned and made huge progress on my knot typing skills. I will definitely be back!

Very fun and exciting
Aug. 2021
We are a family of experienced climbers but had not been to Skaha in years. We had limited time so we hired this company to provide the gear and the guide. We had an wonderful day climbing with Russ. He was able to customize the experience to fit us perfectly. He emphasized safety, gave us some good tips and also a bit of a geography lesson. He knows the area better than a guidebook.

Excellent...a must do!
Jul. 2021 • Family
Second visit was just as good as the first. Russ is a great guide- highly experienced, patient, reassuring and attentive to your needs and wants. If we lived closer we'd be there every month! Excellent 2 days climbing in really hot weather for both my teen daughter and myself. Celebrated my 55th on the rockface!

Another fabulous day on the rock with Skaha
Aug. 2021
My son (12 years) and I had a fabulous day climbing with Lyle. Lyle was great - clearly very experienced and knowledgeable, patient, humorous and did an excellent job of catering to our different ages, skills and strength levels. It was everything we could have wanted in a day on the rock - having fun, being challenged and learning new skills. This was our second outing with Skaha Rock Adventures in three years and am already thinking about returning again next summer.

Amazing family day on the rock with Russ
Jun. 2021 • Family
Our kids, ages 11 and 13, were grinning ear to ear having learned to scale a challenging but safe 5.6 and 5.7 level climb, belay, and rappel.

Russ is fantastic!
May 2021
This was a great experience with Russ! He really cares about you as a climber, is for you and wants you to learn. He's not in it for the money, he is really passionate about his students learning and loving climbing in the safest way possible. I highly recommend taking a class with him!

Thank you for your kind words. And you are right, even though this is my profession, I am passionate about what I teach and want every client to leave with the same sentiment as what you state. I wish you good climbing and hope to see you out in the Bluffs!
