Guiding Tours

Higher Ground offers professional rock climbing guide services with licensed and insured guides. Due to the shortage of larger scale adventure sports operations in the Midwest and Eastern United States, many groups have found few professional instruction alternatives. Our programs focus on trust building among organized groups such as schools, camps, boy/girl scouts, outing and health clubs, business concerns and friends. We teach the value of cooperation and the necessity of teamwork.

We also offer special programs for teenagers and the 20+ crowd with special concerns such as diabetes or epilepsy. We have a team of WEMT’s Wilderness First Responders and Outdoor Emergency Care Technicians so If you always wanted the adventure of a lifetime, look to us. Contact us for details.

We have a permit or a reciprocal agreement in place wherever we guide so you can rest assured we are allowed to go with you. If we cannot guide someplace we will recommend another guide service to you who can. We do not guide where we do not have a permit so please do not ask us to break the law,
