Rock Climbing requires a delicate balance of strength, agility and mental awareness. Scrambling up the side of a cliff with nothing but a rope to stop you from falling is exhilarating; and there’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment and rush of adrenaline that comes when you make it to the top.
A guided rock climbing trip is a great way to see and experience the Vail Valley and the surrounding area. It’s also a great opportunity to accomplish something new and challenging, or to bond with friends and family.
Most Vail climbing areas offer chances to get on the rock for all ability levels and when you go with a guide you’ll get to learn the basics of belaying, rappelling, and setting anchors. There are many outdoor climbing opportunities but the local athletic clubs also have climbing walls for practice and adventure during the winter months.
