Who We Are

rope icon
Devils Tower Climbing has been the premier climbing school and guide service at Devils Tower National Monument for over 20 years! In that time, we have guided thousands of individuals from 7 years old to 91 years young up to the Summit of the Tower and safely back down again! We provide all the necessary equipment needed to climb on the Tower and the expert instruction to facilitate an excellent adventure! 
We offer family fun days, instructional days, play days, and summits. For the seasoned climber, we can take you to the top as many times as you can handle or teach you some new skills if you're looking to learn more about a specific style or technique. For those who have never climbed a day in their life, we'll show you the ropes, teach you the difference between a figure 8 and a BFK, and let you in on all the cool climbing lingo. We specialize in small groups and fully personal and customizable climbing days. You will never be put into a group of folks you do not know, and our full climbing days have no time limits! With no 8 hour restrictions, we have no limits to the amount of pitches or summits you can do! When you hire us, we are yours for the whole day! You decide how long the day goes!
All of our guides are certified professional climbing instructors who have been with us for multiple seasons. They all carry current climbing and wilderness medicine certifications.
