Description

The US state of Colorado holds a collection of prominent peaks, steep slabs and stunning natural scenery.

The southern sections of the Rockies lie within the borders of Colorado. One of the ranges that are part of this section is the Front Range, which runs from the north to south.

The highest peaks in the range include Mount Evans (4,350 meters), which dominates the skyline of the Great Plains, Longs Peak (4,346 meters), protected in the Rocky Mountain National Park, and Pikes Peak (4,302 meters), a granite giant protected as a National Historic Landmark.

Whatever your rock climbing aspirations are, the rugged walls of the Rockies provide the ideal natural playground. Our private trips cater for all, whether you just want to climb one of the handful of iconic walls, or to learn specific skills and techniques, we have you covered.

Some of the best spots where we climb include the canyons of Eldorado, Boulder, and Clear Creek.

The colourful sandstone walls of the Eldorado Canyon have been a prime spot for rock climbing ever since the sport sharply took off in the ‘70s. The easily accessible canyon contains adventurous routes and raw beauty.

The giant granite cliffs of the Boulder Canyon are packed full of climbing opportunities, from single-pitch and multi-pitch climbs to trad climbing routes. On mild and sunny days, its slopes facing south are flooded with warm sunrays, making them prime climbs for sun seekers.

And Clear Creek Canyon provides excellent climbs for intermediates and experts, where you can expect exhilarating climbs on granite, schist and gneiss rock that form slabs, roofs and overhangs.

Each day of climbing typically lasts up to 8 hours, with us meeting at around 8am.
