Front Range Climbing Company
Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a Tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a four-hour introduction to climbing trip, including a guide and all necessary gear, at any of Front Range Climbing Company's guided climbing locations (a $165 value).
Conquer peaks at Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, North Table Mountain, or four other regal rocky regions. During the four-hour intro trip, gravity-bound life forms learn basic safety procedures and vital sky-ascending techniques, such as knot tying and belaying. Front Range supplies all the necessary equipment (harness, helmet, chisels for carving Herbert Hoover's face into the cliff); you just provide the snacks, water, sun protection, and comfortable and weather-appropriate shoes and clothes. Determined climbers will reach picturesque, sky-piercing summits and earn the right to gaze at awe-inspiring views and christen a notable rock Brian Dennehy.
Hilltop-defeaters will feel comfortable and secure with the Front Range Climbing staff, who adheres to strict safety standards and has years of rock-grappling experience. Front Range's reputation has garnered notability as the Garden of the Gods' exclusive guide service, helping picnickers, hikers, and mountain-goat jazz bands experience Colorado's bounteous beauty. Because class sizes are limited, call ahead to make a reservation and discuss a meeting spot.
You must sign a liability waiver and, in some cases, a medical waiver. Climbers 12 years old and under must have a parent or guardian present.
