Coherent Education

Learning to climb can be stressful. We provide comprehensive and coherent climbing education for our clients.

With so many facets of this sport, it's easy to become overwhelmed with the vast amounts of knowledge required. To increase understanding and retention, we've developed hybrid learning programs. Using specialized tools and video tutorials, our clients can practice at home and then join us at the cliff to solidify these skills.


We help maintain our climbing areas for all the local climbers and our clients.

To do this, we have teamed up with the Boulder Climbing Community to help upkeep our climbing areas. Our donations help maintain trails, rebolt routes, and provide sanitation services.

Even after your class is completed, we will be working for you.

A Note From Dan

I started Denver Climbing Company back in 2014 with the goal of making a judgement free and easy to follow path into the sport of rock climbing. I grew up with a severe anxiety disorder and used the sport to my advantage to learn how to cope with stress and the fear of failure. I incorporate these concepts into my teaching style and empathize with the natural stress involved in the process. And if I can do it, you can to. Let's climb together.

Our Clients' Reviews

Gym to Crag

Dan is incredible! My boyfriend and I are experienced gym climbers and he provided very solid introduction to transitioning to a crag. He's patient, incredibly knowledgeable and doesn't just explain what to do but why it is important, where you can take shortcuts and where shortcuts could lead to a safety concerns. He knows North Table inside and out and sets an example of a trail steward, someone who models crag etiquette and his company gives back to the Boulder Climbing organization.

Intro to Outdoor Climbing

Intro to rock climbing covered everything you need to know, even if you’ve never stepped foot in a climbing gym before! Dan is a great guide; explains things well and helps you learn the basics to continue the sport. Much more affordable than the other companies in the area, and much more available times/dates. Definitely give them a go!


This was a birthday surprise for a 4 hr repelling adventure and I’m so glad they chose this company. Dan is one of the BEST guides that I’ve had in a very long time! I’m former military so I say that with trust and confidence in his abilities to explain things, keep you safe and make it fun. I highly recommend any of his services and know you’re gonna have a great time. I’ll be back and thanks again Dan!

Intro to Outdoor Climbing

It was an amazing experience! The hike itself felt extremely satisfying as you overlook Golden, Co. Dan was extremely patient with our group of different ages and experience levels. He made it simple and easy for everyone to try, as well as helped push our limits throughout the climb! Will definitely book again when I'm back in Denver!
