I can't comment on the actual climbing. I attempted to make a booking and enquired about his availabilities more than a month ago with no response. I noticed you could pay and book for the climbing adventures without choosing a date. I wanted to make sure the day I was available was ok with him. I messaged Aric on Instagram, via email, and tried calling him several times over the course of a few weeks. I initially assumed the tours were on pause, hence the lack of response, but saw that he has definitely been active posting on Instagram and seen my message but chosen to ignore it. While the activity looks amazing, I wouldn't suggest you book this tour knowing he may simply choose to ignore messages.

Aric is an awesome instructor he made the whole experience enjoyable and we enjoyed every minute of it. He is knowledgeable enough to make you feel comfortable even for the first timers. Very professional and took care of the current guidelines by public health of social distancing and sanitizing. He has a very positive and energetic aura that is very infectious.. thank you for an experience we will always remember and will be back for some more

During my hiking trip to Thunder Bay and the surrounding area I was super excited when I got reccomended this rock climbing expirence from a friend. I have to admit though that going into this I have very minimum rock climbing experience and was a bit nervous to do my first climb outside of a rock climbing gym. Upon arrival Aric was such a professional and also a sweetheart all at the same time. He clearly explained everything, every step of the way and really felt like he put my safety was put above everything else. I felt so comfortable learning the ropes from him and felt so confident making my first climb after his guidance. During the climb he is such a cheer leader and it really motivated me so much when I got in my head at a few thrilling parts. After finishing the climb I felt like my body was vibrating. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have even been apart of. I could not reccomend this more to anyone interested in getting themselves out of their comfort zones. I felt like the experience taught me so much more beyond my physical limits but also my physoclogical limits. Also as a size note the area is breath taking and from the top of Dorian Tower it will leave you speachless.
