After wanting to try ice climbing since I saw my first big frozen waterfall in Ohio(which actually started my interest in climbing all together.) These guys finally got me out there to try something I've dreamed of for 8yrs. You know what? It was a blast!! They have their own private camp and I was the only one out there... More

We have three kids 8,7&5. We were a bit anxious about trying this-- so glad we did. Our two guides Bill and Kevin were accommodating, patient and just awesome. My 7 year old scales the cliff like Spider-Man, my eight year old freaked out about 3/4 up. Bill was able to talk her through the meltdown and get her through... More

The rock climbing excursion started out with my wife and I, but we ended up with the whole family. Front Range (Isaac) was very accommodating, and offered to help watch the children. The guide (Quin) was great - showing us how to do, and encouraging at the same time. He was great with the adults, and great with the kids.... More

We went rock climbing with Front Range Climbing Company at the Garden of the Gods. Great knowledgable guide at one of Colorado's most beautiful spots. This is the oldest and most experienced climbing guide company in Colorado Springs. It shows. The manager customized our trip and we not only climbed but also learned a lot about safety and techniques. Thanks... More

I've been to the Garden of the Gods and taken visitors many times, but the experience of climbing there gave it a whole new meaning. So, this is a good adventure for visitors and locals alike. Our guide, Lee, called the night before and asked about our objectives. He went over them again the next morning and made adjustments to... More

I arranged for a private climb for my husband and sons. Unfortunately, it sprinkled a little and they weren't allowed to climb at the Garden of the Gods. But our great guide said he knew of a place they could climb at Cheyenne Mountain. Since I had the car, he offered to drive them over there. They had a great... More

My partner and I had the wonderful opportunity to take a class with Front Range Climbing Company in early August. Everything about this process was seamless and easy from signing up for the class, showing up, implementation of the class. Once we arrived and were introduced to our instructor, Patrick, we had the most awesome time. I am an experienced... More

Wow! 24 hours after my climbing trip with Patrick and Front Range Climbing and I still can't think about anything else! Such an awesome experience, it is difficult to find words to describe it; but I will try because it is so well deserved. Simply put, Patrick was awesome. Super professional, fun, knowledgeable and the perfect mix of patience and... More

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
