As the Rio Grande has carved out its canyon, it has left countless areas in the volcanic basalt rock suitable to be explored by technical rock climbing. Our rock climbing trips near Taos NM take place in the heart of the Rio Grande Gorge just above the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande. The Dead Cholla Wall is an established rock climbing area featuring over two-dozen climbing routes just below the rim of the Rio Grande Gorge. No experience is necessary for this trip and is available to all ages, abilities and levels of fitness.
If you’d like to make it a full day adventure, try combining our rock climbing course in New Mexico with one of our amazing Taos rafting trip. When combined with either our Racecourse half day trip or our Orilla Verde half day float, your guides will serve you a nice lunch before or after your climbing adventure, depending on what order you’d like to make the adventure. Just give our helpful reservation staff a call for more details on this amazing day of adventure or feel free to “add on” your climbing activity when booking your half day rafting trip online.
