This is Dao House’s most technical adventure! No experience necessary! Hosted by Colorado Mountain School, AMGA trained/certified guides will lead teaching you a progression of skills to enable you to reach the summit!
We begin with a full day of rock climbing; we’ll teach belaying, rappelling, knot tying, climbing commands, and climbing techniques. Once these skills are practiced we can then apply them to bigger walls!
Acclimatizing is a key component to reaching a summit safely. To help prepare our bodies, we will take an off-the-beaten-path acclimatization hike. Finally, we will bring our fitness and hard skills together on the last day to reach the summit! By learning these basic technical skills you’ll be on track for future climbs.
This experience is offered exclusively as a package with our partner the Dao House. If you’re interested in a course, but it doesn’t fit into your schedule, please check out our custom guiding options.
