If you’re in Denver this...
Malerie_R, Nov 2023
If you’re in Denver this is a must. The guides are knowledgeable and take safety very seriously. I had so much fun! I just wish I was sent the pictures that they took of me but other than that still a 10/10 experience.

Epic climb
Manouchka_C, Sep 2023
This was such an epic experience. I was challenged physically and mentally, all worth it. Brayden was an excellent Instructor. I would highly recommend him.

It was awesome there. Although we were worried if it would be safe on climbing rocks, Dan checked us throughly and helped us all the time. Thank you Dan. We had a great experience thanks to you.
Loved every part of it
Melanie_T, Sep 2021
This was amazing. I'm not sure what I expected but it definitely wasn't this. We hiked up a hill / mountain (good steady hike up) and then were faced with a big cliff. The instructor was amazing, and I felt safe the entire time. And then when climbing he even provided hints -- when I needed them -- of where to step to help me climb even higher. We are now rock climbing enthusiasts and can't wait to try this again.
Great class for those with and without counting experience
Christy_H, Jul 2021
A fun and challenging experience for all skill levels. The guide gives you as much help as you need and enough independence to those with some climbing experience to go as quickly and as many times up the mountain as they can.
Awesome Experience and Company!
Ashley_C, Jul 2021
I had a blast rock climbing with this company. Mark was our instructor, and he was very supportive and hands-on. He taught us each step to rock climbing. He was extremely professional and accommodating. With this being my first time engaging in this process, I was a bit nervous. However, I had no reason to be anxious. I received support every step of the way. I would highly recommend this company and activity if you’re traveling to the Denver area.
Fun experience
Heather_S, Apr 2021
We had so much fun! The guys were so friendly and helpful showing us the ropes. The view was absolutely beautiful and the weather was amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
