Doug and Pete got lots of climbing in for us on our two-day course, at a variety of climbing locations in the Pisgah. They were always patient and happy to break down skills for anchor-building, belaying, rappelling, and knot-tying, and encouraged each person at their own pace. Our group ranged from a first-time-climber to a couple who climbed indoors 2-3 times per week but had never climbed outside. Small class size gives each person a fair share of the guides' attention. Not a wasted minute during the whole weekend. Highly recommended for whatever level of climbing you're trying to reach.

We had a wonderful day climbing at Looking Glass with Anthony. We had a family with two children (8 and 10) and Anthony was incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging and ensured safety. Highly recommended.

I went out with guide Doug Lutz and had a brilliant experience climbing outside. Doug did a fantastic job teaching me the basics and allowed for me to pick what skills I wanted to focus on. He was incredibly patient, answered all my questions, and was an excellent teacher. Doug has a skill in explaining things fully yet simply. He also encouraged me to try routes outside my comfort zone which allowed me to practice movement I wouldn’t have done on my own. If you want to go out and learn a ton while having a blast I really recommend going out with Doug!

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.
