Reach outside your comfort zone and reach for the sky during this half-day beginner rock climbing course.
Outdoor excursions. Mountaintop adventures. Nature-driven sports of all kinds. Colorado is basically built for this kind of stuff, and this particular experience is ready to get you hooked on one of the most hardcore of them all: rock climbing. But don’t get freaked—this is a beginner class with absolutely no prerequisites, so anyone who’s interested in learning the foundations of climbing is absolutely welcome. You can rest assured knowing that your guides will make sure you stay safe while you’re learning the ropes, literally.
This half-day climbing course covers all the basics, including top rope belay, figure eight knots, climbing movement, rappelling and equipment familiarity. The trip is focused on having fun and staying out of harm’s way, which we see as a total win-win. And by the end of the day, you’ll have tried something new and exciting *pat on the back* and you’ll be more prepared to climb with experienced friends.
Important Location Information:
North Table, Golden
From the east, take I-70 to CO Hwy 58. Get off at Boyd St. Go to the 2nd stop sign. Go straight/uphill on Plateau following it briefly as it curves right. Go left and then take the first right onto Perry Pkwy. The sign says Dead End. Go to the end of the street, continue past the gate. Follow Perry onto a dirt road that will lead to one of two parking lots. The lower lot has the outhouses. Both lots have trails which head uphill. For reference, the new Access Fund trail comes up to the main cliff just below This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim in the Overhang Area.
Boulder Canyon, The Dome
To arrive at the climbing destination follow Boulder Canyon (CO119 or bike path) towards Nederland. Less than a mile after you leave Boulder there is a large rock formation and a dirt parking lot to the right. There is also a much larger dirt parking lot to the left. Park to the right if there is space and meet near the pedestrian bridge crossing the creek.
