Challenge yourself and your team by climbing a mountain and be a part of the greater solution through adventure fundraising. The summit is optional but focusing your team for a common purpose is mandatory! Pinnacle of Purpose advocates for access and opportunities for mountain adventures to under-resourced youth and people with disabilities. Proceeds support our non-profit partners Big City Mountaineers & Paradox Sports as tax-deductible contributions. Empower your team to embody commitment to teamwork, kindness, and social impact, on and off the mountain.
It is no accident that climbing mountains creates partnerships. These partnerships are notable for their length, breadth, and fortitude in and out of the hills. Our Pinnacle of Purpose programs facilitates this connection and deepens the teamwork towards a common goal by fundraising for a charitable cause. Experience the pinnacle of achievement through the thrill of climbing a mountain. Engage your team through focused action, motivating them to make a difference in someone else’s life. This harmonious combination deeply connects team members leveraging productivity, cohesiveness, compassion, mindfulness, and unity behind a common goal.
We offer two summit options: Longs Peak and The Flatirons. The peaks are different in nature, season, and commitment. Longs Peak is a high alpine summit best climbed late July through early September. Standing at 14,259 feet, Longs Peak is the crown jewel of Rocky Mountain National Park and features a variety of routes to the summit. Two of our favorite routes are The Keyhole, a thrilling trek that offers exciting exposure and stunning vistas, and The North Face, a classic moderate climb that offers seclusion and a short crux high over Chasm Lake.
The Flatirons form the iconic backdrop to Colorado’s northern Front Range. Rock climbing routes for all abilities lead up large expanses of rock to an airy summit. Pause here to take in views of the high peaks, cities of Boulder and Denver, and the expansive eastern plains before rappelling down. Climbing the Flatirons is best from March through October.
We work with your team individually to customize your fundraising adventure. However, we find the following itinerary affords a high level of success.
Longs Peak Climb Itinerary
Day 1: We will meet our team members, get outfitted with gear and head out to the rocks to work on skills and climbing technique for our Longs Peak climb. The day will end with final gear and food logistics so we can leave early the next morning.
Day 2: Start at the Longs Peak trailhead and hike toward to The Boulderfield (6+ miles). We’ll pitch camp, enjoy the views at 13,000 ft, eat dinner and prepare for the next day’s climb.
Day 3: Get an early start to climb Longs Peak via The Keyhole or North Face route. After the climb, we’ll pack up and head back to the trailhead.
Flatirons Climb Itinerary
Day 1: We will meet our team members, get outfitted with gear and head to the rocks! In a comfortable single pitch environment, we will learn and/or review basic rock climbing skills including tying into the rope, belaying, rappelling, and rock climbing movement skills.
Day 2: An early start and a warm-up approach will get us to the base of the Flatirons. From here, expect to be attached to a rope and in the vertical world for 4-6 hours. We will enjoy climbing in small teams, near one another and taking advantage of comfortable ledges for lunch and swapping stories. After enjoying the airy summit, we will cap the adventure with an a rappel from to the ground and hike back to the trailhead. Post-climb social activities and celebrations are encouraged!
All programs are in convenient proximity to Denver International Airport, with each day meeting in either Boulder or Estes Park, Colorado.
