There is something primal about the feeling of climbing in the mountains. The sun slowly rises as the mountains radiate like fire. The physical effort gives us focus and purpose that drowns out the roar of routine. Muscles burn, palms sweat, and we settle into a rhythm our lungs can accept. Whether it's the top of a rock climb, the bottom of a powder run, or the summit of a mountain the exhilaration of those experiences becomes etched into the deepest folds of our mind. Whether beginners or experts every one of these experiences elevates us as human beings and gives us a unique perspective that cannot be found elsewhere.

Real Guides

Our guides are a fundamental aspect of our company. Without their dedication to this profession we could not exist. Not only do they have decades of climbing experience but they've taken the time and effort to be scrutinized and accept feedback in order to participate in AMGA training and gain certifications. Our guides continuously train to provide our guests with the safest experience they can. It's not just writing on a website, we've got the resumes and pictures to prove it! Our guides have made the difficult choice to pursue guiding as a career and are constantly trying to improve and gain more skills to provide their guests the best experience.

Learning to climb is not like other activities. While climbing can never be made entirely safe; by learning from a certified guide you can improve your ability to recognize and avoid making mistakes so you can enjoy climbing for years to come. We offer a variety of climbing classes to make sure you feel confident when you step out on your own that you know industry best practices and can spend less time at the bottom of the learning curve.

Real Training

Surprisingly, in most states, it requires more licensing and certification to be a hairdresser than to be a guide holding someone's life in their hands at the end of a rope. Not to worry, because all of our guides are required to obtain American Mountain Guides Association certifications and training. While many will pad their roster with inexperienced and uncertified guides we turn away many applicants due to lack of experience and no certifications. In addition to requiring outside training, we also require internal training to make sure our guides can continue in this career at the highest standards.
