An incredible experience at Garden of the Gods rock climbing. My 14-year old daughter and I enjoyed a private tour with FRCC. We climbed for 4 hours on Thursday morning August 27. Patrick Betts was our guide and he is awesome. I had climbed with Patrick last year but could not remember his name when I made the reservation. I... More

What a phenomenal trip. Our guide was Ryan and he was fantastic. We had some reservation time issues the morning of, but Ryan was so accomodating and reached out to ensure that we would be able to climb as planned. He was patient, fun, and super knowledgable. We fed off his energy and did some climbs we did not think... More

Met my guide, Mollie, at 830 at the Garden of the Gods. She took me out to a slab climb to begin with, went through some basics and was very very encouraging the entire time. I cannot say enough as to how wonderful the whole trip was. We did 2 slab climbs then head to a vertical climb. Once we... More

I was apprehensive about this trip. I hadn't camped in thirty years and I had never rafted or climbed. Ryan and Patrick were our guides. They were very knowledgeable and patient. They had planned the trip so it was comfortable for everyone and we all felt like we were successful in the end. Feeling exhausted after the climb, they made... More

Our family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) had a great time! The company did a great job communicating changes that needed to be made due to weather issues. Ryan was our guide and was fantastic! He really did a lot to make our day fantastic. We would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to try out rock climbing in... More

I went climbing with my aunt at Garden of the Gods with Front Range Climbing and it was an excellent experience! I've climbed in rock gyms plenty of times, but this was my second time on a real rock face and I loved it. The scenery was beautiful and the climbs were challenging (both mentally and physically). Ryan was a... More

Ryan Anderson was an awesome guide who was able to adapt the lesson for the diverse experience levels in our group. He was able to answer all of our questions, and I learned a lot about climbing over the four hour lesson.

We had a great time climbing in Garden of the Gods with Front Range Climbing Company. The routes were perfect for both of us (a beginner and intermediate). Patrick was our guide and he was awesome! He was very helpful and took us up routes we both loved! I would highly recommend both him and the experience to anyone looking... More

My boyfriend and I have been climbing in rock gyms now for a couple years and were hesitant to spend the money to have the outdoor experience while on our Colorado vacation. We are SO glad we did! Our guide was John and he was GREAT! He was knowledgeable and capable, always making sure we felt safe and confident. John... More

I just returned from a fantastic group hiking/camping/white water rafting trip that was coordinated by Front Range Climbing and it was the best trip I have ever been on. Patrick and Ryan did an amazing job taking care of us-they encouraged us on the hike when some of us didn't think we could do it, fed us food that was... More
