Join us for the perfect introduction to the exciting sport of Rock Climbing! Our guides will introduce you to the thrill of the climb and show you some of what Boulder Colorado is rightly famous for.
Description: Have you ever wanted to try the amazing sport of rock climbing or transition to the outdoor environment from gym climbing? This is a great introduction to the sport of rock climbing while learning some of the basic safety systems and getting the chance to climb on some great granite or sandstone. Located just minutes outside of Downtown Boulder, Elephant Buttress features a bevy of beginner to intermediate routes that are perfect for first time climbers and families. The easy approach, fun routes, and proximity to downtown make the buttress one of the most favorite climbing spots in the city. This 3.5-hour trip or course is meant to get the beginner or novice climber outdoors and help those who have climbed before but want a refresher. This is a great trip for families, groups, group tours, wedding groups, reunions, individuals, aspiring photographers, and those wanting a great 1/2 day of climbing.
Itinerary: We depart and end from your hotel or a central meeting spot, while driving 5-10 minutes each way to and from a trailhead or climbing site. While driving, we will cover vital safety and climbing considerations. After arriving at trailhead, we will confirm all safety and personal climbing equipment (shoes, harness, helmets, belay devises, and more). Normally it is a 5-10 minute hike to our climbing site (Boulder Canyon, Eldorado Canyon, Golden, and Estes Park). We then head off for 3 hours of great climbing. At the completion, we will rejoice in our memorable experience together.
Included in our rates: The services of a professional rock climbing guide, any rock climbing equipment (helmet, harnesses, shoes, delay devises), round-trip transportation from your Boulder hotel or our office, snacks and water (lunch is also included on full-day tours), and education about local and natural history (including library of Rocky Mountain flora and fauna).
Not included in our rates: Park entrance fees, which are $10 per person daily for Eldorado Canyon State Park and $10 per person daily for Rocky Mountain National Park. Entrance fees are paid directly to the Parks upon entrance, gratuities for your guide are also not included (while the amount is at your discretion, the recommended gratuity is 20%).
