Rock Climbing

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 take place in the heart of the Rio Grande Gorge just above the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande.

Our guides will provide the safety equipment and instruction in rappelling and climbing technique to help you safely challenge yourself. And, depending on your fitness level, we will choose from the routes available to find the right amount of challenge to help you get the most out of your experience.

This style of climbing requires thoughtful footwork instead of powerful upper body movements. Through the help of a detailed orientation at the climbing site, your guides will provide you with a solid foundation to tackle your first route with just the right amount of difficulty for you.
