Guided Rock & Alpine Climbing Trips from Boulder with an AMGA and IFMGA Certified Guide
Boulder is one of America’s top rated climbing destinations for good reason.
Rock Climbing Trips can include Eldorado Canyon and the Flatirons among many other options.
The ‘Fountain Sandstone’ walls carved by South Boulder Creek, of Eldorado Canyon State Park, just 15 min from Downtown Boulder, CO are where some of America’s most famous rock climbing stories were written and legends were made. In the 1970’s Eldo Canyon, as it’s affectionately known amongst the climbing community, was where iconic rock climbers like Layton Kor, Huntley Ingalls, David Breashears, Jeff Achey, and the late great Derek Hersey (to name a few) could be found amongst the unique lichen covered red walls and their famed tilted geologic formations. Both awe-inspiring and humbling, the climbing in Eldorado Canyon is unique and like no where else. Today, thanks to many decades of route development from the local, strong Boulder / Denver climbing community, Eldo now sports over 500 routes of which to enjoy this beautiful and unique climbing treasure and state park, just mere minutes from the growing metropolis of Boulder, Colorado.
Whether a seasoned climber looking to experience the best of what this place has to offer on a limited time schedule, a fledgling trad and multi-pitch climber looking for more mileage with the tutelage of an IFMGA licensed mountain guide, or the indoor climber looking to foray onto outdoor rock, and get way off the ground to experience the thrill of exposure and sweeping vistas, Eldorado Canyon’s plethora of high quality and classic routes from 5.5 – 5.10 have something for everyone. And then of course, there is Colorado’s (and arguably one of America’s) most famous 5.11 rock climbs… The Naked Edge.
The iconic Flatirons are a Colorado Front Range climbing adventure not to be missed ! Towering over 1,000’ high above the beautiful lush green meadows of Chataqua Park, and a short drive from the bustling famous walking mall of Pearl Street in Downtown Boulder, Colorado, the Flatirons are a ‘must-do’ for any visiting climber !
Although technically not hard by modern day difficulty standards, the difficult route-finding and lack of many fixed anchors or adequate easy to place protection, make an ascent of these famed sandstone walls an enjoyable undertaking from within the care of a local certified mountain guide. With routes ranging from 5.0-5.7, but big exposure coupled with aesthetic movement and breathtaking scenery, make this an enjoyable experience for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned multi-pitch trad veteran, new to multi-pitch outdoor climbing and looking to gain some skills and be mentored along the way, or just breaking out of the climbing gym and looking for a grand rock climbing adventure up big walls that doesn’t require a long approach or exotic overnight travel, make sure to get in touch with us today so we can share this amazing adventure with you !
No where else in the USA can someone experience such scenic and iconic alpine style rock climbing and scrambling, just minutes from the metropolitan atmosphere of such interesting and vibrant cities as Boulder and Denver, Colorado.
