We can begin in Eldorado Canyon and get our feet wet, so to speak, on some short pitches to get used to the rock. Classic routes abound, so you don’t have to fear about missing out on great climbs or lost opportunities.
Our second day allows us to open up a bit at the Flatirons and head up the long pitches there, ranging from 5.4 to 5.7. You can see all the way to Kansas from the exposed geology of this enchanting region.
Just when you are hitting your stride, we’ll head back to Eldo and climb up its iconic lines. Blending the longer pitches with the savory sandstone, you can feel the immensity of this special climbing spot on classic trad routes.
Programs generally meet in Eldorado Canyon near Boulder. Contact me upon booking to confirm our meeting location for your program.
For groups of three participants, custom itineraries and skills courses are available. Please contact me for availability and rates.
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!
