Join us in our quest to climb the 100 highest peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides is launching an extraordinary project to document and explore our backyard, and we’d live to invite our guests to join us. The Rocky Mountain 100 Project, aims to summit the 100 highest peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park, and catalogue a database of the topography and climbing routes of each peak. Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, a licensed concessionaire by the National Park Service, is launching this ambitious project in order to promote good outdoor ethics, exploration of our national parks, and to advocate for the protection of public lands.
From the Mummy Range, the Never Summer Range, and the summit of Longs Peak, the project aims to cross all the major ranges including ski descents throughout the winter and complete an enchainment of multiple peaks during the summer. The project will carry out in weather conditions, and in the summer, will aim for longer, more logistically and technically complex ascents.
Rocky Mountain National Park, America’s 10th National Park, has long been the site of cutting-edge ascents in American climbing history, from the explorations of John Wesley Powell to the first ascent of the Diamond on Longs Peak. In the years since, Rocky Mountain National Park has seen exciting ski descents and some of the finest mountaineering in North America.
We would like to invite our clients to join us on our journey, and as trips and peaks are announced, we will be inviting our guests to join whether your goal is to climb or ski one of America’s most beloved alpine landscapes.
