We had a fantastic day with the Sylvan Rocks team. Taylor was a great guide, working well with my 7 yo and got us some great views from some of the peaks in Custer State park.

Can't say enough good things about our climbing experience. Our guide (Shankar) was patient, professional and very personable. Really wonderful experience, and now I want to come back next year with my kids to climb in South Dakota (with Sylvan, of course).
