Certified guides ferry climbers to locations including Ragged Mountain, Rattlesnake Mountain, and Whitestone Cliffs. For six to eight hours, experts teach fledgling mountaineers techniques and assist them as they attempt to scale authentic rock cliffs. All necessary equipment is included, and the guide's risk-management practices help ensure climbers stay safe and don't get tricked into doing chores for mountain trolls.

Ragged Mountain Guides

Founded by American Mountain Guides Association–certified instructor Matt Shove, Ragged Mountain Guides teaches its climbing pupils the techniques and tools needed to scale the natural terrain of the Traprock region. Rock-climbing adventures illuminate how to handle rope and repel down mountain cliffs even when their escalators are broken. As seasonal temperatures drop, guides turn their attention to ice and alpine climbing, which challenges mountaineers to swing their axe and scale vertical ice. Students master increasingly advanced techniques until they can tackle cliffs on their own, and the most dedicated climbers can enroll in guide-certification programs. Matt Shove's expertise has also been tapped by organizations such as the U.S. Coast Guard, and he regularly repels into the offices of Climberism magazine to contribute articles.
