I have two years of climbing experience and was looking for a trip out to Colorado Springs with a Climbing School that would give me a combination of honing my skills and enjoying some great climbs. I could not be happier in choosing First Ascent! Dana the office manager was excellent with follow through and giving me some great recommendations... More

My boyfriend and I used a Groupon and climbed in the Garden of the Gods. Luke R. was our guide and was the perfect balance of laid back, encouraging and safety minded. He gave enough guidance to get us (mostly the boyfriend) to the top, while still making us think and work our way up the rock. Having only climbed... More

Climbing with First Ascent Mountain School was one of the highlights of our family trip to Colorado. We had each of our kids choose an activity they wanted to do on vacation, and our adventure-loving teenage daughter picked rock climbing. Although the rest of our family was not as excited as she was, we all had a great time. Dana... More

I had an incredible experience at the Garden of Gods with this company! This was the first experience my brother and I had climbing a mountain, we've climbed little rock walls before but this was definitely a different yet delightful experience! Honestly, going into it I didn't think I could do it because I don't consider myself very much in... More

I just wanted to take a moment to leave a review of the experience I had climbing at the Garden of the Gods with Sam. It was an amazing experience, and even as an absolute beginner it was still extremely fun, challenging, and thrilling. From the 1st interactions with Dana during the registration process, to the pre-planning call from Sam... More

My husband and I booked a rock climbing trip with First Ascent on a recent trip to Colorado Springs. Neither of us had ever been climbing before and were extremely terrified when we arrived at the Garden of the Gods. To say the climbs looked daunting is an understatement, but we had the best time ever! John was our instructor... More

My daughter, Chaeli, and I had a wonderful time climbing at the Garden of the Gods. Sam was an excellent instructor and had a lot of patience with us as first time climbers. He was excellent at encouraging her when a little fear crept in. I would highly recommend Sam if it is your first time climbing.

This was such a fun way for our family to visit Garden of the Gods! Sam was great and very entertaining and patient with our young kids. None of us had any climbing experience so he explained everything and talked us through each step of the climb. Everyone had a great time. Adults had a blast. The kids were so... More
