Vail Rock Climbing
Apex Mountain School offers something for everyone, from beginners to advanced climbers. These routes range in height from 35 to 90 feet, and approaches are usually within 5 minutes from the car. While rock climbing is certainly a physically and mentally challenging activity, our clients are often amazed by what they are able to accomplish, achieving their dreams while surrounded by classic views of the Vail Valley. Apex guides prioritize client care and will work with you to refine and accomplish your specific goals, whatever they may be.
All ages, ability and fitness levels are welcome. No experience is necessary. Apex provides all technical rock climbing gear (helmet, harness, climbing shoes, belay device, etc.) for your outing.
All climbing trips with Apex Mountain School are private outings and will only be your group and the guide(s) for your outing. We offer the largest permit access to Vail rock climbing areas, and have an extraordinary ability to ensure that our outings occur as scheduled and are uninterrupted.
