Intro To Outdoor Climbing

Class Description

Go outdoor rock climbing near Denver with your own professional Colorado climbing guide. Join our daily Intro to Outdoor Rock Climbing Class, tailored for all skill levels, including beginners! The day begins by meeting your guide on North Table Mountain in Golden, Colorado. We supply all the equipment required to conquer the mountain. Learn the basics and get climbing!

After a short hike through the scenic Colorado wilderness, we'll gear up and cover the essentials of outdoor rock climbing. Once you have the basics down, its time to put these skills to use. The majority of this session is spent climbing real rock cliffs, overlooking downtown Denver and the mountains. Ascend the massive rock face with your hands and feet, while being attached to a rope. A guide is always nearby to answer questions and check for safety. This class is excellent for anyone wanting to experience real outdoor rock climbing in Colorado.

Never climbed before? No problem! We will instruct on all the basics then spend the majority of the time climbing. Learn how to rock climb with us! All required equipment is provided.

Have some climbing experience? Great! We will quickly refresh on the basics then challenge you on various climbs. Our climbing area has routes appropriate for any level. This climbing class is also great for transitioning from a gym to outdoor rock climbing.

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.

Denver Climbing Company is a great company for anyone new to rock climbing. I had zero experience and our guide, Dan, had our group up and going in no time. He also took pictures of everybody climbing and sent the pictures to you at no extra cost. Great company, fun group of climbers, an awesome guide...I would do it again!
