Alpine Climbing & Mountaineering Courses in the San Juan Mountains

Alpine climbing in the San Juan Mountains is characterized by high peaks, quick access, and diverse climbing on rock, snow, and ice. It is a great range to climb your first 14’er, experience a vast mountain landscape, and “learn the ropes” for climbing around the world. We offer privately guided alpine climbs and skill building mountaineering courses in the San Juan Mountains throughout the year. Classic peaks like Mt. Sneffels (14,150’), Wilson Peak (14,017’), and Wetterhorn Peak (14,015’) have rewarding climbs that are suitable for beginners as well as high level routes for advanced climbers. Our mountaineering courses, like the Intro to Alpine Climbing Course, 3-Day Mt. Sneffels Skills and Climb, and the Winter Mountaineering Course provide in-depth training for years of safe and successful climbing. We also offer a guided climb of Mt. Rainier each summer.
