We booked a full day at Crowder's mountain with our instructor Anthony. He was knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help us on our way to learn how to setup anchors on our own. The climbs were fun and we learned a ton. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to begin outdoor climbing. We got a ton of good tips that will help us in the future.

Three of us came to North Carolina for a weekend of anchor-building and climbing with Doug. He was fantastic -- knowledgeable, clear, and encouraging. He taught us a lot and we had a blast. We hope to be back, and recommend Fox Guides and Doug very highly.

Joel was a fantastic instructor. Had a great weekend taking the 101 course. Definitely looking forward to taking another course with Fox in the future.

I can't recommend Fox Mountain Guides highly enough. They are very highly qualified to take you and your loved ones climbing. They are patient, professional, and just fun to be with. They will get you to push your limits. I met up with Travis and we did several multi-pitch climbs at Looking Glass. These folks will figure out your ability level and tailor the day to suit your skills so the day is the right balance of challenge and fun. I will certainly go climbing with Fox Mountain Guides again.

We recently spent a half day with Petey at Looking Glass Rock and had a blast....our only regret was how quickly our time was up. Petey quickly grasped we were relative outdoor beginners and was helpful in explaining basic smearing techniques for slab climbing. He set up all the anchors in a 10th of the time it took us to climb the route which we appreciated as it gave us more wall time ourselves. He even let us get a little out of our comfort zone with a more difficult climb which was just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Fox Mountain guides for anyone looking to explore the Pisgah area and I’m sure all the guides there are great, but fingers crossed you score a jackpot and get Petey....you wont be disappointed!
