I had only climbed once prior to this trip. Sean and Daniel talked us through everything and made me feel very secure. Had a fantastic weekend. Never felt out of control but always challenged and learned so much. I'm hooked! I'll be back

My daughter and I spent two great days climbing at Seneca Rocks with Adam. Seneca is a great location in the East for climbing, and the Climbing School was very professional. If you're in the area I highly recommend the activity and the Climbing School.
