Here’s a little story of 2 Florida kids (at heart) shimming up the side of the mountain and reaching the top on their first try. Highly recommend if you’re interested in getting outside your comfort zone. Dan, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, safety oriented and supportive. Just when you think you can not find the next move, he coaches you through the toughest part and bam! You make it!

I booked the intro to rock climbing class for two for my boyfriend's birthday- we had a blast! I may have had even more fun than he did! Couldn't ask for a better guide- Dan was knowledgeable and fun. Location was great and the 4 hour session was challenging and exhilarating. I am definitely hooked and can't wait to go on another excursion. I highly recommend Denver Climbing Company to anyone with even a slight interest in climbing!
