Our guide was Anthony at Crowders Mountain. He made the experience great. It was our first time trying rock climbing and we felt totally safe and had a lot of fun.

We had a wonderful day climbing at Looking Glass with Anthony. We had a family with two children (8 and 10) and Anthony was incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging and ensured safety. Highly recommended.
