Join us for an introduction to the exciting world of rock climbing at Devil’s Lake State Park. Surround yourself with colorful bluffs and trees while we teach the basics of climbing to beginners and challenging climbs to those of you ready to take it higher. Our experienced guides will show you the ropes - literally - and help you reach your goals.
We will be setting up camp Friday evening. All day Saturday and most of Sunday will be spent learning and refining your rock climbing skills. We generally hike and rock climb throughout Devil’s Lake State Park. Saturday morning we will be doing some instruction on the basic skills required to rock climb safely. Throughout the rest of the weekend you will have the opportunity to hike, rock climb, learn advanced rock skills, swim and enjoy the wilderness experience that Devil’s Lake provides.
In order to provide the finest and most complete wilderness experience, we strongly encourage and expect participation in all camp chores, including cooking, washing dishes, setting up and breaking down camp. We will provide all meals (except in transit), tents, all camping and cooking equipment, and all rock climbing-related equipment. Showers and swimming are available at the campsite.
I just wanted to tell you what a superb time we had on our Northwest Passage multisport trip last weekend. It far surpassed our expectations - we knew it would be fun and exciting but we didn't know how much.
The best part about the trip was the guides, Mike and Paxton. Mike was so qualified and conscientious and attentive to our every need. He was an excellent leader and took full responsibility for the excursions, safety in everything we did, prep and clean up for the meals, etc.
The kids loved him because he was a lot of fun and made sure they had a great time, esp getting comfortable in the water. He tried hard to encourage Sam, who didn't care for rock climbing, and made sure he had an extra good time on the paddle boards.
Paxton has the most positive and fun personality and was super encouraging on the rock climbing. I don't think we would have climbed so high without his tips and encouragement. He knew the rocks so well he could tell us just what to do. We felt very safe and confident with his instruction. There was another group watching us and I could sense their envy! He was a blast on the paddle boards too and was like a (nice) big brother to the kids. They loved him.
Both guides taught us campfire games and made our last night there really fun. They accommodated our every need and were really flexible to do what we wanted without complaint. My kids mentioned later that Mike and Paxton were more like family friends than guides. They said it was one of the best vacations we've ever taken.
Thank you so much for such a great trip. We will do it again and are recommending NW Passage to all our friends, and especially these two guides!
