Hi I am a beginner climber, I have only done it once at vertical horizons in southern IL, and am planning a road trip to the quad cities area this weekend. I do not have equipment, but would like to know if there is anywhere within 60-90 min drive from quad cities that does outside, guided climbing. Obviously I would need to rent gear as well :)

Thanks!

I have yet to find anyone within the QC area that does guided and equipped climbs. however there is a possibility that around savanna, il, you may find a guide or several well equipped individuals. there are a decent number of bluff climbs that ive heard of around the sebula/ savanna areas.
I do reccomend a beginners kit from either climbaxe.com or mountaingear.com
