We will instruct on gear knowledge, gear placement, hazard evaluation, cliffside access, various anchors, and transitioning to a rappel. This class takes place on North table Mountain in Golden, CO. This is only minutes from Denver. Directions are emailed with booking confirmation. Pre-Reqs: You must know how to top-rope including belaying, tying in, and checking for safety.

Wonderful experience today taking the Anchor Building course. It really exceeded expectations. Dan made all the technical learning so approachable and fun while also making me feeling completely safe, I had such a blast and acquired so much more knowledge on rock climbing in general. He has a great approach to teaching, I'm so excited I now have the skills and the confidence to take my climbing to the next level. If you're looking to expand your knowledge, skills and confidence in rock climbing, or even just looking for a really fun day out, this company is worth it! Very happy I went for it!

So I have been climbing my whole life and when I got the opportunity to go to CO I had to hit the rock. Dan with DCC is not only extremely personable, he is extremely knowledgeable and safe. His experience showed and I have to say I will most definitely be back.
