Guide Bio

David is caretaker for the Rocking X Ranch in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness, with his wife and five sons, David is co-owner of Phoenix Wilderness Adventures. In addition to potentially being the fastest hiker on earth, David knows the Anchas like his own backyard, as they are literally his own backyard. David is medically qualified and has served as a backcountry ranger for the USFS in the Tonto National Forest for over a decade. He has been an avid rock climber for over twenty years and has also served as a guide for multiple adventure companies where he learned to walk just a little bit slower for his clients.

David Klingbeil's Reviews

  • Jon landis

    David leads one of a kind canyoneering trips- it’s truly a trip that very few others will ever experience. His years with the park give him knowledge of every square inch of the area. As a family of four, we stayed at the cabins on the ranch, enjoyed Jess’s amazing meals, and spent our days hiking, fishing, rappelling, and exploring ruins that have still yet to be documented. Families don’t come more authentic than David’s and his passion for the land and the area are seen in every trip he leads. The only mistake you can make is not booking more days at this amazing getaway from it all. From world class climbers to families wanting to learn, David offers it all, at your pace, in an ideal environment. You’ll remember his trips for a lifetime.
