Boulder, Colorado is synonymous with world class climbing at all levels. Fun sport climbing, bouldering and single and multi-pitch trad lines are all accessible, making it one of the best places to climb in Colorado.

Our Boulder rock climbing trip lets you explore a number of areas around Boulder but the most popular destination is sure to be the Flatirons. These aged sandstone slabs tower hundreds (some over 1000) of feet over the city. Enjoy a relaxed day top roping in the park or take on the adventure of full day multi-pitch routes that climb to the top of one of these iconic rock faces.

Further south of Boulder, the granite, gneiss and basalt climbs of nearby Clear Creek Canyon and Table Mountain outside of Golden are great family locations for rock climbing trips quickly accessible from Boulder. These cliffs have challenging face and crack climbs that offer up interesting climbing at a range of difficulty levels.

For those looking for a more remote and challenging rock climbing adventure, the Cathedral Spires of Colorado are a great option for those looking to tackle a harder multi-pitch objective. Known for some of the best multi-pitch crack climbs in Colorado, you can try your hand at classic routes such as Bishop Jaggers 5.9 or Center Route 5.9+ up the famous Cynical Pinnacle.

“Our experience with Apex was wonderful. From booking the trip, to finishing our climb everyone at Apex was very courteous and helpful. We loved our experience.” – Krista and Charlie Bendana
