The Front Range of Colorado offers some of the best, easily accessed, rock climbing areas to train on, practice skills on, and hone all the technical systems and movement skills to be both a competent outdoor climber and partner.
The tilted sandstone walls of fabled Eldorado Canyon offer an amazing venue for learning the more complex and intricate systems of trad climbing. Placing good pro, building solid and adequate anchors, route finding, managing technical approaches and descents, and efficient multi-pitch transition skills and rope-work all come into play on these walls. Although it has a bit of a reputation of being slightly unforgiving and consequential, under the tutelage of a local IFMGA/AMGA Licensed Guide, the right skills being learned and applied at the right time on the right routes is all part of the mentored learning process offered here.
In addition, the local granite crags of Boulder Canyon offer excellent classroom venues for training in rock rescue skills, anchor building, learning to lead both trad or sport clinics, and custom skills programs as well. Rock rescue is an important component of being a competent partner in the mountains, and the skills learned on a rock rescue course transfer to all realms of climbing; including crevasse rescue, glacier travel, and even can help with better and more efficient trad and multi-pitch climbing systems that are sleeker and more efficient. Efficiency is generally safety in the mountains, and adds a safety component to just sheer speed of movement.
Learn skills to help up your outdoor climbing game, be a safer and more efficient climber and partner, and have the skills necessary to get out of that inevitable unexpected epic that happens in every climbers career.
