Climbing & Mountaineering

Need an adrenaline rush? There are very few locations in the United States that can surpass Estes Park and its surrounding areas for the climb of a lifetime.

The area has rock with all the feel, personality, touch, terrain and consistency that extreme climbers look for. It's one of the reasons why the area has collected high ratings worldwide.

At the same time, there are plenty of cracks, edges and slabs for the novice to enjoy as well. And if you're just intrigued by the concept of rock climbing, an indoor climbing wall in town allows recreational climbers to give the activity a try.

Want to graduate to sport climbing or trad climbing? Just schedule a lesson or more with one of Estes Park's guiding companies that provide training and you'll learn how to use those permanent anchors attached to rock walls or how to place passive rock protection, and "lead" climb.

More information can be obtained by contacting one of Estes Park's rock climbing and mountaineering specialists.
