Reach the pinnacle of mountaineering and conquer the evocative peaks of the Colorado Rockies! This guided program is catered to your strengths to provide a perfect climbing program, sending you to a classic summit in the most notorious mountain range in the United States!

When it comes to mountain activities and culture, Colorado is more than just a great location. At the center of the Rockies in the United States, with booming sport and tourism industries designed around it, Colorado defines what a mountaineering adventure is.

Each range within the region has its own niche and specialty. For technical and challenging climbs off the beaten path, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are brimming with possibility. Classic 14ers – mountains rising above 14,000 feet, of which Colorado has 54 – are found in and around the Elk Mountains, posing amazing opportunities for brag-worthy climbs. And if rugged terrain is more your style, head to the San Juan Mountains and get your hands dirty on their exciting rocks.

Your program gives you the ability and access to all these unforgettable climbs. Within a day, you will scramble your way to the top of a manageable mountain, or you can choose to take on a more challenging ascent and hit grade-5 climbs that feature mixed climbing.

This program introduces you to an iconic mountain range. By taking this journey, you are setting yourself up for success on future trips with more ambitious objectives. Let me know what you are interested in achieving, and I will help make your climbing dreams come true by tailoring a program to your needs.

All levels of climber are welcome. There are an endless number of possible routes to spice up your trip and make it a special experience for you. Some possible objectives include Crestone Needle, Crested Butte, and the Maroon Bells. Each of these marvelous climbs will be personalized to you, so when you leave the Rockies you will have an experience that is unique and memorable.

Previous climbing experience is an asset but not a requirement. You have a moderate level of fitness that allows for a long day of climbing. If you are planning a multi-day program, you should have the necessary endurance for a sustained program.

This area has been my home for the better part of 20 years. I will ensure you have a safe and satisfying experience, which will undoubtedly bring you back again and again. There is nothing better than sharing my passion for the mountains with other adventurers.

Book this amazing mountaineering program NOW! Craft the dream climbing trip in the Colorado Rockies that you have always wanted!

We can also switch gears and take a rock climbing program in Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas! Or we can grab some skis and go off-piste at Crested Butte!

About the guide

guide profile img

I am the owner of Lotus Alpine Adventures and have a long career in the guiding industry. I started out working in Outdoor Education in Colorado, where I also received a degree in Outdoor Education from Ithaca College.

From 2007 to 2014, I owned and operated Crested Butte Mountain Guides. Throughout those years, I also worked through the AMGA training curriculum and eventually became the 95th American to obtain IFMGA certification, the most rigorous international certification available in the industry.

Throughout my career, I have worked for and built partnerships with many of the main mountain guiding agencies in the US and it is thanks to these partnerships that Lotus Alpine Adventures can now offer programs in very varied spots across the US, including: Crested Butte, Boulder and Eldorado Canyon in Colorado; Moab and Castle Valley in Utah; Red Rocks in Nevada; Valdez in Alaska; Jackson Hole in Wyoming; and the Cascades of Washington.

All of my experience and expertise ultimately results in a truly professional guiding service and a great trip experience for you and your group, regardless of your level or activity.

The world´s mountain ranges are not only our playground but also our office and our classroom. Let us guide you and share with you some truly unforgettable moments!
