Our entire company is built around a fundamental concept: get to know you and tailor the day to you! Peak has a strong connection with Ouray rock climbing. Ouray County is home to our headquarters and we would love to show you around our backyard!
The Ouray area is part of our Ultimate Rock Pass. The Ultimate Rock Pass is a punch pass style offering that marries the benefits of 1 on 1 instruction and guidance of a guide with the cost savings of a group enrollment program. This pass is good anywhere we offer rock climbing “day trips”.
Regardless of how much experience you have it is possible to do a half day of climbing (roughly 4 hours). There are several venues very near the road that are perfect for a quick sample of Ouray rock climbing.
This is a private program, no one else will be paired with your party. If your group is larger than 6, we apply a group discount and additional guides are added to keep the guest to guide ratio at 6:1 or lower.
This is a custom trip that meets at a location to be determined with your guide. Full days typically start at 8:00am while half days can begin at 8:00am or 12:00pm.
All the technical climbing equipment required for this outing is included.

It is unlikely a route exists in The Black that has seen more ascents than Maiden Voyage. With only a short, well protected 5.9 crux this route serves as a great introduction to the feeling of climbing in such a spectacular location. Depending on how the pitches are broken up, there are 5 to 7 pitches on this route. Often the route King Me is linked with Maiden Voyage to provide a few additional pitches of climbing and take climbers all the way to the top of the rim.
Throughout winter, this limestone crag calls to us from its perch above the Ouray Ice Park. This cliff is composed of Leadville Limestone and offers some of the area’s most challenging sport climbs in addition to an incredible selection of moderates. Its hard to beat limestone for technical, balancy, and precision climbing.
This zone is aptly named for its proximity to the Ouray Hot Springs. It is a Hermosa Sandstone outcropping with about 100 routes scattered between 7 named climbing zones. This is a high quality sport and trad climbing destination that soaks up a good amount of Ourays daily dose of Sunshine. This high quality crag offers tremendous grade diversity and is a good place to get an honest assessment of your climbing level.
A short drive South of Ouray on the “Million Dollar Highway” is a collection of climbs known by a few different names. These areas are surprisingly accessible and provide great opportunities for multi-pitch sport climbing. The setting is spectacular and the climbing memorable on good quartzite. Ouray’s most popular multi-pitch climb “Princess Ella’s Magical Adventure” is found here.
