  • Climbing with Idaho Mountain Guides is a blast! I took my entire family for a day of climbing at the Black Cliffs and it was phenomenal. Everyone found a route to the top, and Mat and Doug were consumate professionals. We can’t wait to do it again!
  • I learned to climb from Mat Erpelding. He is one of the best guides I have ever climbed with and I will be back to climb with Idaho Mountain Guides again soon!
