 COVID-19 update

Thank you for your patience and support. We plan to resume guiding June 1.  All trips will see new practices to climbing that help minimize the spread of COVID-19.

North Cheyenne Canyon

In NCC the impressive granite pinnacles reach out towards the sky from dense evergreens. These walls are home to multi-pitch trad routes and sport climbs alike. In winter ‘The Canyon’ even adorns itself with a several ice climbs. The pink granite here is quality terrain for learning multi-pitch and traditional climbing skills, and can offer a reprieve from both the sun and the crowds.

Pikes Peak Rock Climbing

Pikes Peak is known to the casual observer as a gentle giant. But on the upper reaches of it’s daunting Northern aspects are some of the finest glacier-carved granite crack climbs in the country. With little (and often misleading) representation in out-of-print guide books, it takes first-hand knowledge to access these truly classic lines. From blade-like ridges accented with gendarmes, to clean glacier-polished walls, these routes run from one to eight pitches in length, and the quality of stone is second to none.

Red Rock Canyon

Hidden in plain sight just off of Highway 24, Red Rocks hosts an array of sub-vertical routes in an oasis like-canyon. It’s an equally fine place for someone first learning the craft of climbing, as it is for the hardened vet looking to push their footwork to the limit on the delicate cinnamon-colored slabs.
