Harold was excellent. He tailored the experience to fit our level perfectly and we were blown away by how much fun we had!

As soon as we booked, Harold was great with communication and even seemed as excited as we were to do the rock climbing experience with us. Meeting at the location was smooth and easy. We met at the location and checked in at the front desk, where they pointed us in the right direction to meet with Harold. Harold was wonderful from the very start and even tailored the experience to our specific skill levels. He was very encouraging with trying new levels and it was easy to connect with him conversationally. The overall experience was even better than we had hoped for. We had so much fun! Thank you so much, Harold!! You’ve set the bar extremely high for our first AirBnb experience and have officially got us hooked to rock climbing!

Such a cool experience. We're both in our late 50s, albeit active, and this was tailored specifically to our abilities. If your looking for a great challenge and tired of being a spectator, this is for you.

We had an incredible time with Harold! It was exciting and a little scary, but Harold made us feel safe and comfortable. He’s very knowledgeable and familiar with the facility. Additionally, we got a little snapshot of the neighborhood vibe which was great because we had never been to Chicago before. If you’ve never tried climbing before, definitely go for it!

Harold was such a blast to climb with! He’s happy to belay you if you just need someone to hoist you up on the wall, but we learned how to Boulder and spent more time “hanging out” with him than anything. I’d highly recommend working with him if you are a beginner/unsure of your level because he is super helpful.

Harold was awesome. I'm going to use him to do a team building outing for my company soon and would whole heartedly recommend him as an instructor for anyone wanting to begin with bouldering/climbing. He will get you enthused about the sport.
