⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Climbing was great! The team was very safety conscious and fun. Really great time and will definitely do it again! - Scott I. - Trabuco Canyon, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Instructor was great. Mixed climbing and teaching at great pace. Knew Joshua tree climbing routes very well. Chose routes for our skill level while always having them in the shade. - Larry K. - Schenectady, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Amazing first try out!” | Climbing with RCED was my first rock climbing experience ever, my instructor was Jim and he is the best instructor I met. He really knew my ambition, my needs, my fear and my goal. Jim will lead me to figure out my own route instead of follow his imagine and I did it pretty well with zero mistake.
Thanks a lot Jim. Actually, that day was my mom's birthday but she passed away 4 yrs now. So I picked this special date to challenge myself and to memorize her. Jim helped me achieve my goal successfully, many appreciations. - Monica X.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “First time climber, it rocked! (sorry for the bad pun) Tip for best day to book :)” | First time climbing and I took the plunge and signed up for a full day outing. It was on a Friday in July, summer time in the desert; but it didn't feel that hot at all! And Olga knew every climb and when it would be sunny or shaded. Great guide, fun lady, patient teacher.
The busy season is weekends in the winter, so my tip is book on a weekday in the summer. If you're lucky like me, then you just might get a 1-on-1 or a 1-on-2 day out. 🙂 [No promises I'm sure.]
Maybe a full day was a little ambitious since I didn't /really/ know what I was signing up for; but it was a BLAST! Lots of climbing, scrambling, repelling, spelunking, hiking, all made for a very fun day.
I would definitely recommend you book w/ RCED; make sure you book for Joshua Tree, it's a world class climbing haven. - Rodney S. - Dallas, Texas
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga is such an amazing and talented athlete. She was so patient with my group. I didnt think I could make it but she believed in me. We climbed 3 giant rocks in JTNP, all challenging and fun. Thank you!!!!! - Vivianne C. - Piscataway Township, NJ
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I booked an all-day private guided tour with Olga and had the best day at Joshua Tree. I'm new to climbing and she introduced me to new routes, technique and tips to make me a more confident climber. We also managed to have fun, staying out until the sun went down. I'm looking forward to my next trip out! - Madeline C. - Civic Center, Manhattan, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “My first rock climb ever!” | Climbing with RCED was my first rock climbing experience ever! My instructor was Olga, and she really made feel comfortable with tackling my first task, which in turn, gave me the confidence to tackle all the other climbs that day. If you're looking to learn how to rock climb, RCED is the way to go. You will not only climb on your first day, but, in addition, you will learn to belay, and use belay devices. As a beginner, I discovered skills and techniques that I never knew I had until Olga pointed them out. I am so glad that discovered RCED, because now, this is the company that I can depend on for my next adventure. - Sina S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | amazing experience. we went in as complete beginners and Olga was the best teacher we could imagine! she was super patient, knowledgeable, and really made sure we were safe and covering all of the essentials. Couldn't recommend them enough! - Marty R. - Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Staff (Olga) was exceptional in leading and instructing. Her patience and upbeat manner were contagious. The smile on her face as she shared stories and tips and techniques and ALWAYS emphasizing safety made for an atmosphere of fun. We did not feel as if this was a business but a passion she wanted to share. Kudos to the Personal Manager for recognizing and hiring such competent staff. - Sam G. - Upland, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “RCEB ROCKS - Yes pun intended.” | Olga ROCKS - We had so much fun and learned a lot all at the same time. We are preparing for big caving trip that will require quite a bit of rock scrambling - we've never done it before and spent a half day with Olga out at Stoney Pointe. Lots of work, great training and super fun. Highly recommended. - Paul C. - Los Angeles, California
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I had a great experience with this company and would highly recommend them. Our tour guide Olga was so helpful. She is so passionate about climbing and teaching, and she made it so much fun! - Malorie M. - New York, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Decided to try rock climbing for my husbands birthday. It was very fun, Olga went above and beyond to make me feel safe and comfortable. When I was ready to give up she went to my aid climbed up and down mountain with me, gave me support and positive energy to accomplish the task she was right the feeling of accomplishment was worth overcoming the seconds of nervousness. We went with 3 other people but even then Olga found the time to give each and everyone her full attention. She was fun, energetic and safe instructor. Will define be coming back! Call her you won't regret it ! - Angie E. - Orange, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Better than we ever expected. Our guide Calvin was a complete professional whose focus was on safety & made us feel comfortable with letting our teenage twins climb & repel massive rocks. We will use them again & request Calvin. The office person, Olga was also very informative & super pleasant! Amazing experience. - Reina E. - Los Alamitos, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | My experience with Rock Climb Everyday was amazing from my first inquiry call to the repelling experience. Olga was informative and responsive. In fact, I "butt dialed" their number, and she called me back apologizing she had missed my call, asking how she could help me. Customer service like I have never experienced! On to our adventure. Jim, our guide, was RAD (sorry, I am an 80s kid, and this is the first word that comes to my mind for him!). He was fun, informative, protective, attentive, and funny! He was patient with my nervousness. I can't say enough about our experience in Joshua Tree with him. I had trouble with one of my repells, but his enthusiasm, love and respect for the sport makes me want to conquer that rock. And I will only re-attempt if he is my guide again. This is your company for your rock climbing adventure! - Jennifer E. - Fontana, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Rappelling Fun!!” | We had an early start meeting two guides and the rest of the group at the visitor center at Joshua Tree Park. I have a fear of heights so go figure...I chose to do this, but glad I did. With that said, the guides and the others in the group were extremely supportive, fun and safe. We rappelled from two rock formations: the first I considered the practice run; the second the real deal at about 100 feet. Be ready for a full day - we met at 7:45AM and ended about 2:45PM. A few of us from the group and the guides went to lunch afterwards. It was an awesome experience, am sure to do it again and would recommend these two guides (Olga and Carlos) for anything. - scubastx - Los Angeles, California
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “1/2 day climbing” | I've done a lot of amazing things in my life from expeditions through most of our nations national parks, been to a couple dozen countries, jump out of helicopters for a living, and the list goes on. Rock climbing for the first time, I went with a guide from Rock Climb Every Day. He took me to Joshua Tree and gave me one of the top 5 experiences of my life (a life full of amazing experiences that most only dream about). So when I say top 5 experiences, it's legit. I will 100% be doing another guided climb with this company!!!!!! - Jason L.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I had a wonderful experience, Jim was an excellent guide and instructor. He was very patient and accommodating. The landscape was SO beautiful (Joshua Tree) and I felt extremely cared for and safe in Jim's hands. So much so that I think I'll make rock climbing and repelling a hobby :). I loved it. - Deseray G. - Yorba Linda,, CA

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Rapelling joshua tree” | Had a great day rapelling at joshua tree park. We all met at the visitor center and drove together to the first rock (which of course we had to climb before we could rapell). After we all descended two times we drove to aan bigger rock and rapelled from 30 meters high, which was pretty amazing. We had a nice group so the waiting in between was no problem. - paul78h - Veghel, The Netherlands
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Awesome rock climbing experience in Joshua Tree for the whole family” | What an awesome day climbing and exploring in Joshua Tree. My two sons and I, ages 10 and 14 had never climbed before. Our guide, Jim, was fantastic. We climbed all we could handle and then he took us on an incredible caving adventure in the Chasm of Doom. Communication with Olga was easy. When we return, we will definitely go with Rock Climb Every Day again. - Ted S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “1/2 Day Rock Climbing-Joshua Tree” | Wow, what an experience. Our guide Jim was amazing, thoughtful and very understanding. I would highly recommend this company and Jim as a professional guide. - Tim L. - Calgary, Canada
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Such an awesome first climbing experience!” | My family and I booked a 1/2 day climbing adventure in Joshua Tree National Park, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Our guide, Kelvin, was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging. He was amazing with our boys, who are 8 and 11. Kelvin gave us the perfect combination of adventure and education, and shared so much about the sport that you can tell him genuinely loves. Our 1/2 day adventure with him was easily the highlight of our vacation! - Wendy L.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I took the anchor building class with Kelvin at Stoney Point. He was right on time and a great teacher. Prior to the class, my experience with anchor building included reading John Long's Anchor book and watching other people set up top rope anchors. After the class with Kelvin, I feel confident to set up my own anchors, and will be using what I learned this weekend and next at Red Rock and Riverside Quarry. After the class, I was still able to contact Kelvin and ask him questions, and he quickly responded. Kelvin was right on time and answered all my questions. The class turned out to be a one-on-one instruction, since no one else signed up, which was fantastic! FYI: If you sign up for their newsletter, you get $10 off your first order. I didn't know about this and so I paid full price--but I still think it was well worth it. Also, once you take their class, you are included in their "members only" outings. I have yet to receive an email about these outings, but I hear it is once or twice per month. - Kimberly T. - Long Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | RCED is fantastic! Olga is so passionate about climbing and she takes the time to really make sure you understand what she shows you. She is so full of energy, too, and goes way out of her way to make it a great learning experience. Another great thing is that once you take a class, you are always welcome to join them for climbing, so you can practice what you learn, which is invaluable as a climber. - Sheri W. - Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Super fun. Must try” | Our instructor, Kelvin, was very professional and very patient with us since we were all first timers. He payed attentions to the details and make sure all the practices were safe. At the end of the day, we all enjoyed this uniq experience and would definitely do it again. - Debbie L.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “The best climbing experience! Book "Rock Climb Every Day" every day!” | "Rock Climb Every Day" customized an unforgettable solo rappelling-and-climbing experience for me at Joshua Tree National Park. Olga Ortiz was my guide and she made safety and knowledge of why I was doing what I was doing on the rope top priorities. Her experience, enthusiasm, and coaching really became invaluable when I had to ascend the rope. She spent a lot of time talking me through the movements of ascending, which requires some practice, but she was very patient as I figured it out. Without her help, I don’t know how I would have ascended one hundred feet to the top of the rock! After rappelling and climbing, we hiked a short trail through a rock obstacle course and looked at some other areas in the park where climbers were engaged. She clearly loves her job and wants to pass on that excitement to everybody. I highly recommend “Rock Climb Every Day” and would book all my climbing trips with them! - Darius S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Amazing experience with beginning rock climbing” | Unlike other classes that require a minimum number of individuals to host a class, I had the experience of learning the basics from Kelvin, a very knowledgeable guide who not only was patient and thorough explaining technique and safety standards, but also gave me so much detail and attention. I thought my class might be cancelled as I turned out to be the only one signed up, but instead of dreading a one-on-one or cancelling, RCED gave me all the attention that leads to developing a true understanding of rock climbing and safety tips. Because we had some extra time, Kelvin walked me through everything from safety tips, to gear, to learning to tie various key knots and how to belay, of course. Even when the fear of getting stuck took hold, he was clear and supportive and led me through an amazing experience. Really a great experience and would recommend to anyone with even the smallest interest or curiosity in getting into climbing. - Hector G.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Amazing day at Joshua Tree” | My daughter loves rock climbing and usually does it indoors. For our trip to the desert we booked a morning with Jim Dover of Rock Climb Every Day. Everything about it was fantastic. He called after we booked to see what kind of climbing she likes and was genuinely excited to tailor the day to her interests. He is a great communicator and taught her so much in just a few hours about rock climbing and challenging herself. Also he clearly placed a priority on safety. It was one of the best experiences we've ever had on any vacation. We'll do it again for sure next time we visit! - Julie Z.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “A great day exploring the park” | We signed up for the beginner's half day course for my family of five on the website a couple days before having done a fair amount of research online. The website was very easy to use together with filling in the online waivers. We were scheduled to meet at the Joshua Tree National Park Visitor's center parking lot at 8 am. Olga texted us at 7:35 am to let us know to look out for her burgundy truck. After meeting up with her, we followed her into the Joshua Tree National Park. The $20 park admission allows you to enter the park for 7 consecutive days. We went hiking there the day before so we still has the receipt stuck to our windshield. As we got there early (highly recommended), we got a good spot to go climbing. RCED supplied all the equipment from helmets, shoes, harnesses etc. Carlos helped out a bit at the beginning with shoe sizes and harnesses but then disappeared. Olga then took over and went through everything. Safety was a primary concern for her together with keeping it fun. There was a couple with another instructor from another school climbing next to us and he was really pushy and the climber asked if he could stop and take a rest. I could tell that he was really struggling. Olga graciously offered our spot to them as we were about to wrap up the first location. After climbing this rock-face, we went to another more secluded location to do more climbing and rappelling. That was really interesting. I've got to say that Olga was very energetic, capable and knew her stuff. She was also very personable with my wife and teenagers. She was very patient and even though we signed up for half a day, she stayed with us until 3pm. It was a fun and memorable day. Thanks Olga!!! - screenname485-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Empowering, informative, safe, fun, & life-changing.” | I recently visited Los Angeles on a solo trip, and it meant the world to me to visit the Riverside Rock Quarry which was a climbing destination of great significance to a good friend of mine. I had not done any climbing in many years & even then it had been in an indoor rock-gym setting rather than outdoors. Though Riverside Rock Quarry was not a location where Rock Climb Everyday teaches group classes, Olga & Carlos graciously agreed to make my dream come true and to take me out & "show me the ropes" (so to speak). They were patient with my being a climbing novice, didn't mind the continued repetition necessary on the knots & other techniques that was necessary in order for me to finally grasp each said concept (which admittedly took longer than for most people I would suspect), and every bit of our journey, as well as Olga's instruction, were completed with a smile. There was also a great deal of fun & laughter as she has a great sense of humor. By the end of our climbing adventure, I truly felt as though I had been genuine friends with Olga and Carlos for years. How amazing to have a connection like that with people one had only just met. If you are a beginning climber, please do not be afraid to try something new. I highly encourage you to try this! It is empowering. Do not for a moment feel intimidated by any lack of knowledge as Rock Climb Everyday will teach you everything you need to know to feel AND BE safe on the rocks. You may not even believe what you are capable of and surprise yourself as I did. It is truly a life-changing experience. Safety is so important to Rock Climb Everyday that though I had Olga & Carlos take me out, I would trust any of their guides to take me on my next climbing adventure as I know safety is top priority when interviewing, hiring, and training their guides. I have full confidence that each and every member of the Rock Climb Everyday "family" would not only be competent & confident but also great fun to be around and to climb with. They are all about making your full experience pleasurable, memorable, and safe. I enjoyed myself so much that I can't wait to come back to California & go climbing in Joshua Tree with Rock Climb Everyday! In fact, as soon as I got home, I purchased my own Black Diamond harness & helmet (which certainly is not necessary as Rock Climb Everyday has everything you will need, but for me, they have awakened a passion). I promise that once you give them a call and experience this kind of adventure, you will never forget it. Try it, & you may just come down from that mountain changed. Climb on my friends... Climb on! - Kate S.-San Diego, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | Olga and Carlos (our guides) were wonderful. It was obvious from the start that climbing is a true passion for them. They strove to make the experience both fun and challenging. Safety, of course, was their top priority. The combination of Carlos's humor and Olga's excellent instruction made our first outdoor climbing experience a memorable one. - Jeremy949-Irvine, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Wonderful instructors" | I got a beginners climbing lesson in Joshua Tree with Olga, and it literally couldn't have been a better experience. I was the only student for the class, but they were nice enough to not cancel the class, so I had the good fortune of being Olga's only student for the lesson. She picked a great set of climbs for us to do, did a great job of encouraging me to push myself, training me to belay, and getting me super excited about climbing on a regular basis. - owl1234-New Delhi, India
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga was amazing and funny. I Took her class and didn't know what to expect. She made me feel very comfortable and safe. If you want to take a rock climbing class I highly highly recommend taking it with Olga. - Joseph V.-Ontario, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Took the beginning class in Riverside and had a blast! Learned the basics while doing some challenging climbs. Kelvin is a great instructor who emphasizes safety first. - Todd B.-Newport Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Awesome beginner climbing class!" | Kelvin was an amazing instructor for my friends and I at the Riverside location. He was super friendly, extremely informative, easy to understand and follow, and most of all patient! We all had plenty climbing time and Kelvin made it fun for all. I can't say enough good things about our experience with RCED and Kelvin! - Jeff H.-Huntington Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I took the Anchors class with Olga and could not be any happier, I had read a text book on Anchors before class and we covered everything and more, Olga is extremely versed in all types of anchors and walked me through all possible knots and combinations that I could use in as many scenarios as we could cover. I had the opportunity to practice every scenario as well, and as if that wasn't enough, this morning I received a nice summary email with all the information covered in the course. Great course, the best instructor! Thank you Olga! - Cariel C.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I took their anchor building class and got everything I wanted to get out of it. Kelvin was a great instructor and had no problem answering all of my questions. He gave me a system that was easy to use and adapt to allow me to take the next big step in my outdoor adventuring. More importantly the system and guidelines provided are safe and tested, unless you have an extremely experienced mentor you really need to learn from a professional. I'd take another class from this group any day. - Mark D.-Oakland, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Carlos and Olga was our tour guide and top rope instructor at the Chatworth climbing site. My first outdoor experience was very useful, and fun. I love learning the different techniques to help me approach the situation to get to the top. Their enthusiastic nature and charismatic personality was a blast to be around making this the best experience. There was never an awkward moment or any fear I experience as they explain things in detail and ensure that everyone is hook up properly before each climb. I highly recommend Carlos and Olga for your next climb. - Titika W.-Barstow, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Amazing adventure!” | Although it was an extremely hot day, our guide Jim took us to a nicely shaded area with challenging courses that push you to test your comfort yet still have loads of fun. Jim was very knowledgeable and made sure everything is safe and give encouragements and guidance. A must do if you want to have fun and be active even if you don't have any climbing experience. - Jin L.-Sydney, Australia
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I took the class and loved it for soooooo many reasons! Safety first is the rule they live by and enforce, so they will correct you if you are building bad habits. Olga is funny, kind and patient so you can relax when learning. Also, the follow up references, blogs and advice she gives still help me improve as a climber. - Denise A.-Irvine, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “BEAUTIFUL AND CHALLENGING ADVENTURE” | I signed up for the Beginner Climbing Class - what a GREAT introduction to climbing. I learned a tonne of information! From how to tie my figure eight knot, tying into my belay, the different types of carabiners, how to do safety checks with a climbing partner...the list goes on. A wealth of knowledge, LOTS of climbing time to practice and implement. I would have liked to make my way to Joshua Tree but it was over 2 hours from where I was staying so I did Topanga Canyon and thought it was beautiful! - melindafriedsen-Abbotsford, Canada
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Amazing” | Took an anchoring class with Olga, she is the best! Had an awesome time and learned a ton! Highly recommend it to anyone, whether beginner or advanced. - Buddy N.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Two Great Days of Climbing in Joshua Tree” | Our guide Jim went above and beyond what we expected. We booked a Half Day Rock Climbing Adventure with 5 people. A 6th person joined us, which worked out well. Jim quickly set us up on two top ropes with easier routes to get going. We split into groups of three and Jim taught everyone how to belay. The third person of each group was a belay backup for safety. Jim provided lots of advice while we all climbed 3-4 routes. After that we could have been done considering we booked a half-day, but Jim took us to another location where we got to try out two more challenging routes. I also spent another day later in the week alone with Jim. He gave me a great overview of anchor building and trad climbing. Exactly what I was looking for. Fit in a ton of instruction for a short period of time. Gave me a good base of knowledge to get me climbing outdoors. I also found Rock Climb Every Day's website, booking process and communication to be fantastic. Highly recommended. - Tristan P.-Brooklyn, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Fun rock climbing adventure in beautiful Joshua Tree” | There were nine of us who set out from Palm Springs to meet with our rock climbing guides, Adam and Jim. It was a beautiful and short drive. When we arrived at the park and hooked up with our guides we knew we were in for a treat. The area we climbed in was perfect for our group. Jim and Adam had three ropes going simultaneously. Each rope had different skill levels and challenges just right for our group of intermediate to beginner climbers. Jim was amazing with the kids and was able to encourage them to climb higher than they thought possible. It was great to see them achieve those victories on the wall! Both guides were encouraging, knowledgeable and professional. We had a blast and I was a hero for suggesting Climb a Rock Every Day company. You can bet we will return and climb with them again. Thanks Eva for making booking with you such a pleasure. Special shout out to Jim for driving into town to return the sunglasses we forgot. You you can bet we will return and climb with them again. You guys totally rock!!! Keep on climbing! - Ellie- Pacific Palisades, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | We booked a rock climbing adventure in Joshua Tree with Olga. We were primarily going to have her climb with our 12-year old, who's an experienced indoor climber. However Olga also took our two other kids (6 and 9) up for some climbing and rappelling. She was awesome. She has a great personality, is super knowledgeable, and truly went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a great day. Olga was prepared with everything we might need. I would absolutely recommend her and RCED to anyone interested in climbing. I'd give her more than 5 stars if I could! - C B.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Excellent service, Amazing instructor Jim” } Me and my friend were climbing for the first time. We went to Joshua Tree it was amazing and rock climbing was very hard. But Jim was always there for us making us feel secure and was very patient with us making sure we enjoyed this new experience. I can't wait to do it again! I absolutely recommend it. I was in love with rock climbing by the end. Thank you so much Jim <3 - apriscillagalindo-Riverside, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Went rappelling. The instructors were great, the entire activity was really fun, and the venue was really good. - Rounak J.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Rappel session at Joshua Tree.” | 4 of us. I rapped once 30 years ago in the Marine Corps, my son did it once in 6th Grade Camp, and my wife and daughter have never done it. Didn't matter, our instructor/guide Jim was awesome. By the end of the session he had us rappelling down Cyclops. Can't say enough good things about Jim. Will recommend to all my friends. - Mike-Chula Vista, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Trad Lead Class - Joshua Tree” | Once again i had the pleasure of taking a class with RCED, in this case a trad lead class and once again i received the most professional instruction on the planet, that is why i take all my classes with RCED, Not only is the instruction the best, they keep you laughing and make the experience so rewarding and their (RCED's) unselfishness and willingness to help/advise and invite climbers they just met that day to climb with them is the trait I admire most about RCED ,they are there to help you become the best climber you can be. RCED every day folks.... - stringlord778-Norwalk, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga is an awesome instructor. She provides a safe and fun atmosphere where you'll get a ton of hands on training. We had a great time! My 13 & 15 year old sons & I took a beginner climbing class in Chatsworth. And she added on a bonus repelling class. We spent the entire day climbing and rappelling. I highly recommend. - Robert A.-Simi Valley, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Perfect Day of Rock Climbing” | Olga did a great job with us. My family of 4 went for 4 hours of instruction. Olga showed us the safety and knots, and double checked us all day. She made it fun, and got us right into the climbing, letting us challenge ourselves as much as we wanted. If you go out for some rock climbing instruction and you don't use RCED, you're making a big mistake.They were very flexible as to the time and exact location of our day. Since we were a little short on time, we met up in Riverside, which come to find out, has some pretty cool rocks to climb. Thanks again Olga and Mario, for giving us a great Mother's Day! - Kevin and Family-Redondo Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Fantastic instruction" | For my first rock climbing experience, I could not have found a better instructor. Olga at RCED was informative, personable, and patient. But that is just the beginning! This wasn't just a get in and get done day trip adventure, where I was told I'm safe and then had everything done for me. Olga actually taught me basics. I had to complete my own safety knots, check my equipment, and hers, for safety precautions, then how to properly belay. She actually had me belaying her. She told me where the holds were as I was moving, and took control of my fear when I couldn't. She helped me focus and insisted I take a moment to smile and relax through my fear.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "A wonderful day climbing at Joshua Tree” | While staying in Palm Springs we arranged to climb in Joshua Tree with Rock Climb Every Day based on their strong reviews. My husband and I were climbers, many, many years ago, but this would be the first time for our 7-year-old daughter. Jim was great from the start. He was patient when took the wrong route to get to the meeting spot, resulting in over an hour delay, and offered to give us our full climbing time anyway. He was great with our daughter, deferring to us about whether or not to push her when she hit a scary spot. He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and patient. I would highly recommend him to a first timer or someone who has made many climbs. He even followed us out of the park to make sure we could get to the NPS Visitor Center before they closed so that our daughter could buy a desert tortoise stuffed animal that she had her heart set on. - Presidiomom-San Francisco, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Great Day at Joshua Tree” | Our instructor from Rock Climb Every Day, Olga, was fantastic. She is a positive, high energy person who genuinely cares about sharing her passion for rock climbing, and she does it in a way that is very accessible...no attitude at all and made us very comfortable. At the same time, she will push you to try things and to keep going. That's a winning combination. Even more important, Olga is extremely focused on safety, which was key for me since I took my 12 yr old daughter out to climb for the day. Being with an instructor who is both extremely knowledgeable and not driven by ego to take risks really put my mind at ease. You will be in good hands with Olga! - Paul-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I have done many classes with the RCED crew and could not be happier. From a first timer to the seasoned climber they have you covered. They are very knowledgeable and teach you at your pace. I will continue to climb with them and to recommend them. They are a fun crew that keeps you safe and laughing! - Diane C.-Murrieta, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga from rock climb everyday has been my instructor of choice for the last year. She provided my refresher course, my lead climbing course, my anchor building course, and my trad climbing course. I have trusted her with my training and continue to. I have spent many weekends climbing with her and her crew. Her energy, safety focus, positivity, and depth of knowledge all keep me coming back for more. I love rock climb everyday. - David E.-La Habra, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Joshua Tree Rock Climbing” | I met my guide at the visitors center, we went inside the park, she set up the safety ropes and led me through my climbs. Through my beginner eyes, the climbs appeared short--they weren't! They were challenging and fun. I felt safe throughout the day. It was just a great day! - Golden-Pig007-Shanghai
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "awesome trip" | Olga was a fantastic guide! helpful, encouraging, supportive, and fun!!! We had a great time, and were amazed at our capacity to climb, even tho this was our first time! I would highly recommend rock climb every day for everyone, beginners and advanced rock climbers!! - Malkirosenberg-Airmont, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | We took our first class with RCED a little over a year ago and have been climbing with RCED ever since. The instruction is first class, I would recommend anyone and everyone to look no further than RCED for rock climbing instruction. RCED creates rock climbing and camping outings throughout the year ( pretty much every weekend)and the students are invited to participate and practice their skills with the group, what other climbing instructors do that, none that I know of. One of the best things about climbing with RCED are the friendships I've made, Olga and Carlos are the best and so much fun... - Greg G.-Norwalk, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Rock Climb Every Day is the best!” | I cannot rave enough about RCED and Olga (our guide and the owner). She was fantastic and went over and above everything we could have wanted for our day climbing in Joshua Tree. We took three kids (6, 9, and 12) climbing and rappelling. Olga was thoughtful, personable, friendly, and super knowledgeable about climbing and the area. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to try climbing, whether you're a beginning or an experienced climber. She brings all the gear, explains what to do and sets everything up so you just have fun climbing. She was the best part of our trip to the desert! - C B-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Such Fun Adventure!! Exceptional Service/Hospitality.” | Had a fantastic time climbing all day at Joshua Tree National Park. When I first spoke with Olga on the phone to make a booking, I already knew I would be taken very good care of, but it was beyond my expectation! When I got to the Intersection Rock parking lot (our meeting point), I was greeted by "two" awesome guides - Jim & Olga. Jim was my main guide of the the day who set routes for me, but Olga also gave me lots of pointers while Jim was setting routes and while I was climbing. Olga also took many pictures of me climbing, belaying, chilling etc. as well as fabulous Joshua Tree scenery, which she uploaded to Dropbox and sent me the link (This is a lot of work!). She even wrote a nice article of my full day adventure at Joshua Tree and posted in her blog. All my fellow climbers back in New York are jealous that I am now famous in Joshua Tree area -lol Jim & Olga were extremely accommodating to my requests and they were for sure not stingy about spending extra time with me. "All Day Rock Climbing Adventure" was supposed to be 7 hour long, but they ended up spending 9 hours with me. I got 12 climbs and 1 rock scrambling in and ended the day very content. I will definitely use their service again & can confidently recommend their service to all my friends. - Taeko S.-New York
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “A lot of fun” | Will definitely do again next time in in California, I never knew how much I like mountain climbing, I really enjoyed it even though it was my first time. - Hersheyrosenberg-Monsey, NY
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “excellent experience!” | My kids and I took the beginning climbing course with Olga. It was very fun and exciting. We always felt safe and learned to belay. The views were spectacular and I was impressed with Olga's enthusiasm and eagerness to take us on extra climbs. This was an excellent value and I highly recommend it. - 456william-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | “Great Fun - Excellent Instructors / Guides" | Been on several rock climbs with Rock Climb Every Day. They are a great group, knowledgeable, super fun and they have events in a variety of places for all skill levels. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn how to rock climb to those who are proficient at it. - Diane
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Beginners outdoor climb" | A fantastic day with Carlos. The first climb was scary but after that I was on fire! I'm now totally hooked! Carlos and Olga were so friendly and encouraging, not to mention professional and safe. I had a blast and can't recommend this enough. - Kt S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Where can I start ? I started rock climbing four years ago with Olga and I've always had a great time. Many laughs and memories with RCED. Great instructors and a no pressure environment for beginners. - Aurelio I.-Long Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I have always enjoyed climbing in the gym, but thanks to Olga and RCED I have been able to take it out doors! Olga has taught me how to be safe while enjoying the beauty of outdoor climbing. She has an amazing talent and passion for teaching, climbing, and people. My friends and I took an anchor building class from her last fall. There was so much to learn but we were all successful in learning how to build safe and secure anchors. We also enjoyed Olga's thorough and energetic teaching style. Thanks Olga for getting me and my friends climbing outdoors. It has changed my life! - christina e.-Costa Mesa, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I've always wanted to pick up the sport of rock climbing (outdoors to be particular) so I spontaneously booked me and a friend a session with RCED. It was a nice way of getting my foot in the door and seeing what it's like in comparison to indoor gyms. They were very professional, accommodating, and prompt with questions I had through email and reserved a slot for us within a day's notice 🙂 Our instructor Olga, was really kind and patient. With many years of experience and teaches classes for lead climbing and anchoring, she's quite the expert. You can tell she's very passionate when it comes to climbing and even climbs when she's not working. She was great at instructing us with basic guidelines to follow and is a stickler when it comes to safety. No complaints here because those verticals were no joke! She showed us to a few different rock faces that were just the right amount of challenge. We broke out sweating after struggling to climb the harder one. Of course, if you're not up for anything too strenuous there are easier rocks to climb. Overall, it was such a great experience for us that my friend wants to pick up rock climbing too! We felt 100% safe and I've walked away with more knowledge than I did before. My body now feels like mush so I know I've got a good workout. Will definitely request for Olga again. Btw, RCED even have weekly outings they hold at different locations once you're subscribed to their mailing list. Oh, and they supply all of the equipment you'll need to climb i.e. harness, shoes, helmets. Just remember to bring your camera and water. - Alisa L.-Long Beach, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I had such wonderful time climbing with Olga. She's a great instructor, skilled and very safe. I've been looking for people to climb with for almost 2 years. Finally found them! - Natalie M.-Woodland Hills, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga is the best instructor a first time climber could ask for. After climbing in the gym for a few weeks, I was itching to try outdoor climbing and i was so happy to have met Olga. I went out to climb with her in Joshua Tree and we had a full day blast! Climbing outdoor is very different from climbing indoor. It just requires more skills, knowledge, confidence, and techniques and that's why i think that it's important for everyone to take at least a class from a professional. Climbing outdoor is extremely dangerous because if you don't know how to set up anchor well or familiar with the rock, it could be the last time you ever climb. Olga is a very experienced climber but she is still always so careful about everything which I really appreciate because it helped me being more confident on the rope. I'd like to describe my climbing experience with Olga beyond just a class but it was rather an experience. She knew so much about climbing and the location that I felt like I was on a national geographic expedition or something. And the greatest thing about taking a class with Olga is that you will get to connect with other new climbers and get invited to future climbing trips with other students, which is something that no other climbing school really offers. I can't recommend her enough. feel free to message me if you have questions about my experience with rock climb every day. - Snook C.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Great! Experience. This is a must in your bucket list. Olga is an amazing instructor with lots of experience and patience. I highly recommend their services. Rock Climb Everyday provides everything you need, from the Shoes, Ropes, Harness, Helmet and confidence. The great team will walk you thru everything you need to know and ensure your safety is always first. Love it! Can't wait to go back. - Sal A.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | Olga is an enthusiastic instructor. I was nervous, and she was super encouraging. We got to climb for over the four hours of instruction. And, as pointed out in the other review, once you've taken the class, they invite you back to climb for free so you can practice and hone your skills. So, it's a great deal! - Sana A.-Bakersfield, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I loved every minute of this rock climbing experience. We had so much fun in Joshua Tree. Our guide Olga was AWESOME. She was professional, personable and so much fun to hang out with! She brings along years of climbing experience and safety was always a top priority. We cannot wait to climb with rock Climb Everyday again. - Meghan T.-Los Angeles, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I love these guys! I tried one of their clip and go adventures, because a class was a bit intimidating for me at first. I also took their beginner's intro class and knew I was hooked. I got my own equipment now, so I get out and climb with them when I can. Their staff is super friendly and have encouraged me to continue working on my technique. I would definitely recommend them. Can't wait for the next outing! - Katrina D.-Buena Park, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yelp | I did my first ever Rock climb this last weekend with this Group. I have to admit I was nervous having never Rock climbed B4. However Olga and Carlos made me feel totally comfortable & I managed to easily master the basic skills under their masterful instruction. I thought I would be too old (59) too inflexible (can't really sit cross legged) & slightly overweight (ate to much over Xmas) & have a bad attitude (don't like rules & to be told what to do. But NO PROBLEM! Carlos is an Engineer and totally cool and Olga a total Hot rock climbing Babe! What's more they are not only are experts but manage to impart their skills to even the most seemingly inept so you are going to feel like you can scale even the most difficult vertical Rocks effortlessly! Added Bonus, once you've done their course they let you join them on their weekly outings to improve your newfound skills! So if you are office bound, glued to your computer or a couch potato ALL is not Lost! Sign up and maybe you too will get addicted like me. John Moore.-North Hollywood, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Fun and adventurous!" | I had a lot of fun with Olga! It's important to be with someone who prioritizes safety with rock climbing, but she managed to keep it fun the whole time! She really knows her stuff too & gives great resources for continued learning. - Sarionne-Costa Mesa, CA
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ TripAdvisor | "Climbing lesson" | Fantastic! They are very safe and very knowledgeable. We had a really great day. I definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to learn to rock climb outside. - consumer2016-Santa Monica, CA
