The staff was super friendly from the first call to the last minutes of my day with the guy. I would recommend this company without a doubt.

Our guide was excellent and we had a great time - definitely recommend First Ascent. The office support was also outstanding - they are a great outfit!

Guide was very helpful and insightful. We had to re-locate from Garden of the Gods to Cheyenne Canon due to weather (and Cheyenne was packed!), but our guide knew of a secluded area. Even with a group of five, I was able to get three climbs in and definitely enjoyed myself.

Our guide, John was great. My buddy and I both had some climbing experience so John geared us towards climbs that were suited for us. John was knowledgable, eager to help and I think he enjoyed climbing with us as much as we did with him. Thanks for a great experience!

From Our Editors

John McDonough has spent his life rising to meet outdoor challenges. Years ago he began traveling the globe as a skier and rock climber, finding adventure and challenges on faraway mountains and snowy cliffs. After more than two decades on skis and 15 years scaling rocks, the AMGA Certified Single-Pitch Instructor??who once accompanied an inspiring group of blind climbers on a trip??now operates First Ascent Mountain School. The gig comes with the daily pleasure of watching beginners submit to the powerful sense of awe and accomplishment that comes with mountaineering. As First Ascent's founding director, John has assembled a small band of professional mountain guides who shared his zeal for nature and teaching. The crew touts a penchant for making the sometimes-intimidating activities of rock-terrain climbing and snowshoeing accessible to anyone who is interested.
