Description

Take your rock climbing skills to the highest level on an advanced program in Rifle Mountain Park! This full-day guided program will place you in the beautiful landscape that surrounds Aspen and give you the tools to conquer any challenge in the Rocky Mountains and beyond!

Within a couple of hours of the recreation mecca of Aspen, Rifle Mountain Park has made a name for itself as a haven for rock climbers seeking intriguing and challenging climbs. Comprised of more than 400 routes, this Rocky Mountain retreat caters to beginners and experts alike with long lines, thrilling pitches, and diverse terrain. Pick your poison from limestone or sandstone and carve out a personalized trip just for you.

Your program will help you progress as a climber, no matter your discipline. Trad climbing, sport climbing, and even bouldering programs are available to mold you into an advanced climber who can face some of the most difficult rock in the county. The location in Western Colorado places you near desert towers, so there is an immense variety of instruction and rock for your program – just let me know what you are looking for, and we can build a trip around your needs and abilities.

We will focus on some of the fundamental techniques that make good climbers great, such as movement and recovery positions, utilizing the proper muscles throughout the climb, and identifying and adjusting to challenges and hazards while climbing. My aim is to teach you through endurance climbing and provide a basis for your advanced skills that you will be able to develop and master on the rock. Sno Cone Wall features about climbs up to 5.12, and some of the runs have been around since the 1980s and serve as classics to test your mettle.

This full day program will start early, and by the time we finish, you might just have the chance to experience the amazing wilderness that surrounds Rifle Mountain Park. From waterfalls and trout hatcheries to hikes with adrenaline-pumping rappels, this place has it all. This is a full immersion into the unique nature that is but a stone’s throw away from Aspen, making for an unforgettable experience that will help shape you into a master climber.

You should have a high level of fitness and enough experience to benefit from a sustained day on the rock. A passion for climbing and a determination to advance your skillset is equally vital.

Book this amazing day of rock climbing NOW and spend a day touring the challenging and rewarding walls of Rifle Mountain Park with a guide for a spectacular experience near Aspen in the Rockies!

For a more modest program, or for anyone looking to dip their toes into the sport, we can take a half-day beginner rock climbing program in Rifle Mountain Park!
