"Sarah and I had an awesome time. We were both impressed by and appreciated the fact that you actually taught us some of the finer points of climbing, rather than just setting a rope and saying "there you go." -Mike, Wisconsin

Private Rates and Custom Guiding
If you are interested in hiring a guide for climbing or instruction but prefer to go with your own group we have private guides available year round. Our custom guided trips and instruction are designed to give our guests more input into the decision making process so the trip that is in their head can become reality. With your input on the your experience level and the goals of your climbing trip we can give you the best experience possible. We can help you decide what locations may be suitable for you or your groups experience as well. We can tailor a climbing trip to any experience level or physical ability whether you have never climbed or your are an experienced climbers. We have guides who can match all ability and experience levels. While many people desire to book custom guided trips, Individuals on a budget may desire to check out our prescheduled classic climbs or climbing courses. While we are based out of Colorado Springs, CO we offer guided trips in many locations all over Colorado such as the Boulder, Denver, and Grand Junction areas. For groups larger than 6 please contact us for custom rates.
*Please note, all rates are per person, e.g. 3 people for a regular rock climbing day would be $135/person for a total of $405.
**Half Day trips generally run from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM and 2:00 PM- 6:00 PM​ from May through September. Multi-day rock trips including food and 
accommodations are booked at Ice and Technical Mountaineering rates.
Private Guiding Rates and Times:  
  • ​Half Days generally begin at 9 AM and 2 PM and are around four hours long. This is good if you are a small group or only want a small taste of what climbing is about. This also works well if you are looking for a refresher on a climbing class or easier skills such as rappelling.
  • Regular Days also generally start at 9 AM and around around six or seven hours long. This is great for groups of more than just a couple people. This timeframe also works well if you are wanting to work in depth on a skill that you have little experience with.
  • Full Days may start at various times due to considerations of weather and the objective. Participant experience and fitness will also be a factor. These days are generally about eight hours but may go longer. This time frame works well for bigger objectives like The Flatirons, climbing Fourteeners, or for those wanting to do an in depth lesson of a particular climbing skill.
  • All rates are per person. For groups larger than six please contact us.
What a Custom Guided Trip Includes:
  • An AMGA certified guide and personal instruction.
  • All group climbing equipment (ropes, carabiners, climbing protection, etc.)
