About Us

Devils Lake Climbing Guides is a small, local guide service committed to offering quality climbing days on the quartzite bluffs and crags of Devils Lake State Park. We welcome beginners, youngsters, oldsters, rusty climbers, and long-time rock jocks to join us for the amazing experience rock climbing can be. You don't have to be a good climber to have a lot of fun rock climbing. To learn more about our history and philosophy, read our About Us page.

Dawson and Luke were exceptional leaders. They were patient and encouraging without being pushy. They adapted each climb to each kid so all were continually challenged.

Nick will make sure you’re safe, comfortable, and challenged if you want to be. My two days with Nick motivated me to make climbing a large part of my every-day life. He’s a class act.
— Mike
You accommodated our complicated schedule, focused on the major themes of climbing safely, tailored instruction to our learning styles and attention spans, and made the day a very enjoyable experience. You exceeded my expectations as a professional and an educator.
— Michael
Nick is not only a great guide, but his teaching style is one of the best I’ve experienced.
