Lester was great. He has excellent knowledge of the climb and was super excited informative about exactly what to do an how to do it. He made the climbing challenging enough but not overwhelming. Also made sure everything was within my comfort zone with the safety systems, instructions and back-ups. Great first outdoor wall climbing experience, would easily recommend it.

Lester was excellent! We were a youth group from church of 14 teenage girls. We covered safety of equipment and nature around us, the beauty surrounding us, and had an amazing experience conquering our fears.

Everything about this trip went beyond expectations! Lester was kind, helpful and fun - truly made the experience memorable! Lester was extremely communicative before the trip, prepared us for what's to come, and made it fun for both people in our party with very different climbing experience levels. Would highly recommend and hope to do a trip with Lester again soon!

This was my first experience rock climbing outdoors and it was wonderful. Lester made us feel completely comfortable and was very thorough and clear in explaining the process and equipment. I can't wait to do it again!

Virginia, USA, Hidden Rocks, Guided Half-Day Rock Climbing

We loved our half day rock climbing adventure with Wild Guyde Adventures! Lester is the perfect guide who is prepared, engaging, and informative and we look forward to booking a trip with him again! The rocks we climbed are a location that Lester discovered himself and therefore is untouched by tourists and other groups. The rocks were challenging yet very achievable for us beginner climbers - particularly with Lester coaching us the whole time. We loved the rappel as well as the detour to the waterfall. Despite some light rain, Lester remains upbeat and go-with-the-flow making him the perfect guide for a group of any size, skill level, or occasion. His genuine passion for the outdoors is clear which truly made this trip unforgettable and worthwhile. Thanks, Lester!

Our family of 5 (ages 5 to 42) booked Lester for a rock climbing session and we had an absolutely fantastic experience. We learned climbing skills (and about local flora!), had an amazingly fun time and felt safe the entire time. We will be back and I would highly recommend!

Great find by my wife. Lester, our guide and owner, was great, We only came with one pack but he was able to provide us with another to carry our gear. Along the way to repel and climb he shared facts with us about the flora and fauna as well as schooling us in some cave trivia. Lester was very encouraging and willing to let us decide what we felt comfortable doing. Loved the repelling though my son just couldn't take that first step. Later after climbing though, Lester let him practice on a short ledge (which was great). allowed to belay for my son on his climb. Highly recommend this company for the expertise and the camaraderie that quickly developed.

Lester, our group had an awesome time with you. You took a bunch nervous adults and teens and showed us the ropes!!!your knowledge and encouragement allowed us to get over our fears and meet the challenge. If we’re ever back In Virginia, we will certainly look you up!

Lester took us rock climbing in SNP at little stoney man. It was a 90 foot repel and then we had two different ropes to climb. The view was spectacular and the rock climbing was challenging but fun! Lester was an awesome guide and he made us feel safe. I would highly recommend Lester and will definitely reach out to him next time I am in VA.

An amazing experience! We had an amazing time. Lester has an infectious energy and passion for the outdoors, you can tell he enjoys welcoming us into his world. In addition to being fun to be around, Lester is extremely knowledgeable and cautious; I absolutely felt I could trust his instruction and expertise. Highly recommend, you’ll not be disappointed!

What a great day with Lester. All the family loved this activity. The youngest loved the climbing and our teenagers enjoyed the rappel. Lester had the ability to share his passion with all of us. We will remember this day for sure!

Kicked one off the bucket list with my boys- age 7 &9 with Lester yesterday climbing in the Massanutten Range! He was a wonderful, patient, and knowledgable guide! My boys loved every second of it and made it to the summit multiple times! The views and colors were beyond spectacular! Would def recommend!!! If we visit the area again we will be climbing with him again!

I often fail to write reviews but not this time. Lester was nothing short of an amazing teacher and guide! He picked a great spot to climb in Shenadoah National Park. The views were incredible. He had asked us ahead of time if a dad and daughter could join us and made the trip affordable. Lester started with intros and safety. I could immediately tell he was a guide with strong character, which definitely brings assurance when you are going to be attached to his ropes. Lester did an awesome job breaking down the steps for us to learn gearing up, belaying, and climbing! In our group, we had different comfort levels with this new experience. Lester encouraged, demonstrated, and pushed us a bit to step out of our comfort zone but only what we were up for. For those more comfortable or experienced, he gave us fun challenges. It was an awesome experience and honestly the highlight of my trip.
