Rock Climbing and Rappelling with NMRA
Our popular rock climbing and rappelling adventure is back! Spend 3-4 hours exploring Dead Cholla Wall, an established climbing wall with over two-dozen climbing routes located just below the rim of the Rio Grande Gorge, and overlooking the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande. No matter what your age, ability, or fitness level, your guide can plan the perfect climbing route for you. Our professional, knowledgeable guides will provide all of the safety equipment you need, and top-notch instruction to find the perfect balance between challenge and fun, tailored to you. After a comprehensive orientation at the climbing site, your guide will get you started on your first route; and through professional instruction, help you establish and achieve your climbing and rappelling goals. Our guides are at the top of their game, and have introduced rock climbing in New Mexico to countless outdoor enthusiasts. We offer this trip in the mornings, meeting at 8 am at our headquarters located along the Rio Grande. Your guide will pack a snack to keep your belly from distracting you while you experience the high-desert beauty of the Rio Grande Gorge, so you can concentrate on making memories and finding your inner rock-climber!
If you’d like to make your experience last all day, you can combine your climbing excursion with one of our awesome half-day rafting trips down the Rio Grande! We offer two different half-day trips that pair perfectly with climbing, and help you beat the heat after you’ve worked your muscles on the climbing wall. Both the scenic Orilla Verde Float section and the exhilarating Racecourse Class II-III rapid section are available to combine with our climbing trip, and our widely popular fajita lunch is served riverside on our full-day adventures. Our helpful reservationists are standing by to take your call and help you book your dream trip! If you decide to book online through our award-winning website, you can add the climbing trip to your half-day rafting adventure.
