DESCRIPTION

MULTI-PITCH OVERNIGHTER

Climbing multi-pitch routes is an exciting, different way to experience Colorado rock climbing. Multi-pitch climbing is ascending the rock more than one length of rope. The lead climber begins up the rock, with another member of the party “belaying” or holding the ropes securing him or her. He or she then establishes anchors to then belay the party from above. Once the whole party arrives at the anchors the process begins again. Using this method, the climbing group can ascend to any height, only limited by time and ability.

From beginner to advanced climbers, everyone can enjoy the exhilaration of multi-pitch climbing. Colorado is home to some of the most celebrated routes in the world. If you’re looking to build your knowledge and skills in the climbing environment, a multi-pitch adventure is a great way to get the full package.

POTENTIAL TOPICS

  • Knots
  • Anchor Evaluation
  • Efficient Climbing
  • Gear placement, climbing efficiently and placing gear.

LOCATIONS

Climb the edge of the Colorado Plateau in The Colorado National Monument or challenge yourself on a spire at the famous Fisher Towers in Utah. These mountain and desert multi-pitch towers are known as some of the most spectacular tower climbs in the world.

One of our most unforgettable experiences is an overnight stay atop a 12 foot wide desert tower summit! Climb this 500 foot tower and anchor in on top for the night. In the morning, awake to watch an amazing sunrise over western Colorado. Make multiple rappels to the ground and enjoy a reflective morning hike out of the desert.

This trip might be one of the best experiences of your lifetime. You’ll soon realize why these formations have gained the reputation of being some of the most exciting rock towers around. Multi-pitch climbing a tower is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Apex did an amazing job of taking me to North Table Mountain in Golden for some rock climbing. Eric took the time to understand my skill level and goals for the session so he could customize the experience to meet them. He adjusted how high, how hard, and how fast we went based on my comfort level and checked in with me constantly. Awesome experience and I’d highly recommend them!
