Full Day Rock Climbing: Beginner to Advanced

A full day or roughly 8 hours of rock climbing will go by much faster than you’d expect.

For beginners, you will learn the fundamentals of rock climbing movement, how to tie knots and belay, how to rappel, and you will do 5 to 8 climbs at two different climbing areas in Ouray. We keep the atmosphere relaxed and go at your speed. 

For climbers seeking intermediate to advanced instruction, we will help you improve your climbing movement while going on a tour of Ouray’s best crags. We commonly teach anchor building, top-rope set up, lead climbing, and multi-pitch climbing systems. Just let us know your goals and we will tailor the day to suit your ability level and interests.

Half Day Rock Climbing in Ouray

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.
