Set just outside of Golden, these south-facing cliffs are perfect for guided rock climbing any time of the year, with an easy approach and easy top-roping. The routes here are generally short, many no more than 60-feet, but feature many different features including arêtes, dihedrals, and technical face climbing. Take on classics such as Deck Chairs on the Titanic or Lemons Limes and Tangerines. Then get into some Colorado crack climbing with routes such as Killian’s Dead and Big Dihedral. 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 the trailhead, we will confirm all safety and personal climbing equipment (shoes, harness, helmets, belay devises, and more). Normally it is a 10-20 minute hike to our climbing site where we spend 3 hours climbing on the cliff. 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%).
