Explore the amazing Aspen-area rock climbing with a private guide
We offer privately guided custom short day (4 hrs) or full day (6 hrs) rock climbing daily, on scenic Independence Pass and surrounding areas. There is no need to have any prior experience! Rock climbing with our professional AMGA certified guides is a safe and fun activity for most physical abilities. Enjoy some mindless climbing fun or learn the basics of outdoor rock climbing, including movement on the rock, belaying, rappelling and more. Whether you have some previous experience or none at all, our rock climbing guides will customize the day to suit your needs.
All necessary climbing gear is included (ropes, rock shoes, harness, helmet, pack). We can meet you at our shop at the Aspen Highlands Base Village or pick you up at your residence. The climbing areas are only around 15-30 minutes from downtown Aspen, offering ideal beginner to expert climbing with amazing views of the surrounding peaks and the Roaring Fork River.
Short days are perfect for families with children ages 4 and up and those with limited time. Full days are a preferred way to experience the scenic beauty of different climbing venues and for in-depth instruction beyond a simple introduction.
