My daughter and I did this excursion on a whim. We came across a flyer in the resort where we were staying and called to make a reservation two days in advance. We reached the facility, after driving across some beautiful mountains, on a cloudy spring day with temperatures in the upper 40s and light winds. Once we signed the... More

My wife and I, owners at High Rock Adventures wanted to try the N Rocks Via Tour. Garrett was our guide and it was awesome! Great workout, the views were fantastic, the course is very well designed and the guides and staff are just amazing. The setting is beautiful. This part of WV near the VA border and close to...

Thank you so much for the flattering review! Garrett had an awesome time climbing with you two, and I greatly enjoyed our conversations about recreation in Ohio and WV. We hope you'll make it out this way again in the future, and we wish High Rock Adventures the best season possible in 2017! More

It was the best family adventure we've ever gone on. My dad brought me, my brother, my sister, and her husband on this outdoor adventure back in late August. I had just gotten back from a long trip in Europe, so I was pretty jet lagged. I was also nervous at first because I don't have climbing skills and my... More

I recently did the zip line tour with two friends. We were the only three on the tour as it was late in the season, and it took roughly and hour and a half to complete. We had all previously done the Via Ferrata (which was totally amazing!) and put the utmost faith in the NROCKS guides to ensure we... More

Beautiful fall day, colors, and views. Steve, our guide, was great! Very exciting way to enjoy such a unusual formation. Stayed overnight, at their tent site, and enjoyed the starry sky. I will be back. They have additional trails I want to experience!

One of the best single day outdoor adventures I have taken. The scenery, guides, and safety are all top notch. I highly recommend a trip to climb the Via!

I look back at the pictures of me doing the Via Ferrata and smile just seeing the big smile on my face. I loved it! It was safe and soooooo much fun. Our guides were very supportive and focused on safety. Two of our group of 14 made it through the first quarter and then turned back. They were able... More

I went to NRocks with two friends yesterday, and we all had a blast! We were able to experience rockclimbing and bouldering safely and without having to spend money/time on equipment or lessons. We joined others, forming a group of 12, led by two awesome guides, Bryan and Wildflower. The guides knew the course, equipment, and safety. They encouraged the... More

I had the most amazing time with NRocks on the Via Ferrata climb. Britney and Steve were amazing guides. They were both extremely relaxed and chill. There were several nervous first-timers and they were very good at coaxing folks along without any pressure. Very reassuring, and as a result, I was able to even to add on the additional 100'...
