"Great instructors! I was impressed with the attention to detail and safety. They did awesome with my 13 year old daughter! She got as much climbing time as she wanted and she even got to rappel."

"I am new to the climbing scene and was very impressed by the organization and professionalism of the entire crew. They did a top notch job of explaining the everything we would be doing during the day and emphasized the safety measures thoroughly. The result was an awesome and fun packed day of climbing and adventure. 5 stars!!"
"I took the Intro to Ice climbing and then stayed for the Happy Hour. I had a blast. Prior to today I did not think there was any chance I could do this. Brad and Dan were excellent instructors and coaches. Totally awesome. I will go back again."
Scott and sons (Aidan & Keegan) had a blast on the first flatiron with @danhunteroutside. It was Keegan and Aidan’s first multi-pitch climb and they crushed!
“Awesome climb and communication prior to the trip. My compliments to Dan Hunter who is a true professional. We did the Direct Flatiron One route with him and my 2 sons age 20 and 22. I’m 55 now with some climbing background in my 20s and 30s in a variety of climbing… sport, traditional, multi pitch so I had some experience. The boys had a little bit of gym climbing and some outdoor top rope climbing. Dan lead safely, set great anchors and explained everything along the way, helping with climbing technique, route direction etc. It was the boys first multi-pitch climb. We had a blast and a memory we’ll all enjoy reliving over the years. Looking forward to doing another trip with Dan some day soon.” ~ Scott
Kelly’s first time rock climbing. 🧗♀️ After discussing & practicing crack and slab climbing technique, Kelly did an incredible job climbing all the way to the top of the east face of the dome. After a few hours, her arms we’re jello so @danhunteroutside took Kelly to the summit and she finished the day with a 100+ foot rappel. 🙌
@jesslynneexplores & @ashley.marie.3788 are officially snow climbers! 😎 @danhunteroutside had the pleasure of working with these two friends who are avid peak baggers. Learning how to use an ice axe and crampons to ascend snow, seemed like a logical progression for them. The Hallett Couloir was the perfect objective, lower angle slopes towards the bottom of the couloir allow for self-arrest and anchoring practice. While higher up, the angle steepens and front pointing and rest stances are used.
The snow softened up and everyone learned the art of glissading (sliding down snow on your butt). 😄
Conditions like this in Rocky Mountain National Park won’t last long. 🏔 Contact us and speak to a guide about planning your own adventure.
First climbed in 1961, Ruper is still one of the best 5.8 multi-pitch routes in the canyon. A climber once got his knee stuck in the notorious Ruper crack, forcing rescuers to use motor oil to free him! @pfinette did an incredible job following and had no stuck knees. 😎
This video is a pitch by pitch breakdown of the climb. Thanks to @daleremsberg for the anchor beta! 👌
