Albert is a very knowledgeable guide who knows how to get to all the areas, and knows the beta on all the climbs. He’s super humble (amazing climber!) and doesn’t have his own agenda - he just wants the client to have a stellar day and get on everything they want.
Albert guided us on a hiking tour of the cave art at Hueco Tanks. He is knowledgeable and passionate about the area. It was a very interesting tour. I’m also thankful Albert kept us safe while traversing cliff faces, which is not at all within my comfort zone. Thanks!
Pleasant and helpful staff leading us and our kids to have an enjoyable first time rock climbing! It is a very inviting area for all ages (we have 3, 5, and 6), we will definitely be back frequently!
Best climbing gym ever in the history of everything!
