My fiancé and I have been climbing in gyms for about 6 months now. On our last trip to CO we decided to try climbing outdoors for the first time. Scott the director of APEX was our guide. He took our climb request not only last minute, but spent four hours of his birthday teaching us how to climb! DEDICATION to what he LOVES doing! I wish all their reviews showed up, these guys deserve all the good things said about them. We plan to do the flat irons next year outside of Boulder! Thanks again Scott!
