Amazing Multi-Pitch Experience with Meg!
Sep 2021
A couple weeks ago my husband and I went climbing with a guide, Meg Yingling, in El Dorado Canyon and had the best time! Colorado Mountain School made it so easy and convenient to book a guide and we were so lucky to be placed with her (although I have no doubt the rest of their guides are wonderful as well.) Meg was incredibly experienced, knowledgeable, patient and helpful as well as just so much fun to spend time with. This was our first experience with multi-pitch and trad climbing, and we couldn't have picked a better person to do it with. We can't wait to go out with her again the next time we are in Colorado!

Worth EVERY penny
Aug 2021
If I could give a higher rating, I would!
The office staff at CMS is excellent: eager to help folks complete successful adventures. My mountain climbing experience with Jason was absolutely outstanding. He's an expert, a pro, in every possible way without a hint of condescension. Patient, skilled, directive, supportive... the list goes on. I am literally already thinking about new adventures to take on, JUST so I can work with him again. (Ice climbing, anyone?) I cannot recommend him or this organization highly enough.
Don't hesitate. Figure out your next "big thing" and ask CMS to help you make it happen. They're worth EVERY penny.

Sarah was amazing! Highly recommend this company. My son and I had a terrific morning in Boulder Canyon. We felt safe, and learned a great deal.

Rockin' the Rocks
Jul 2021
We took the 4 hour beginning climbing course with Sarah and Dave. We were at a lovely spot not far from Estes Park. Both guides were excellent instructors, teaching the important details and making sure everyone felt confident to climb. Participants had the opportunity to climb multiple times on a variety of routes. We loved it all and highly recommend CMS to others!

Perfect!
Jul 2021
Everything about our experience with CMS was great. It was easy to make a reservation. The instructor (Brian) checked in ahead of time and was very responsive to our particular needs. And then the actual climbing and instruction were great. Highly recommend!!!

Great instrcutors and a must do when you are at Estes Park
Jul 2021 • Solo
I took the 4-hr beginner climb and Wes Fouler was my instructor and he is phenomenal!! I am a first time rock climber and he genuinely showed interest in helping me learning the sport. Great instructions, techniques and suggestions when climbing through difficult spots. We tried 3 different climbs and rappeling. Definitely recommend him and the climbing school.

A Day on the Ice
Feb 2021
Our guide, Dylan, was a great resource for ice climbing. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and really a skilled teacher. We learned some basics about the equipment, and then practiced the climb. Then, Dylan set up some challenge scenarios on a different climb that would focus on specific skills such as the footwork. This was a great experience, very much appreciated the calibre of guides that CMS has.

Colorado Mountain School - Intro to Mountaineering
Aug 2020
I did a 2 day intro to mountaineering course with Ian Fowler.
There are not enough words to describe how awesome those 2 days were and how amazing Ian has been as a guide to learn from. Ian was super knowledgeable and patient and I learned so much during these 2 days. But most importantly - I was left with a taste for more mountaineering and I am eager to learn more and do more! 5 stars!!!

Hi Shaismchi! Thanks so much for sharing your experience of your mountaineering course. We're so happy that you learned a ton from Ian–he's a fantastic guide. To hear your thirst for more mountaineering makes our day, and then some. We hope to see you in the mountains again soon!

Go Climb with them
Aug 2020
We had Wes Fowler for 2 days of multi-pitch guided climbs. The first day was Pear Butress on Lumpy Ridge and the second was Petit Grepon. Wes was fantastic. He definitely pushed us outside our comfort zones, took the time to teach us the techniques we needed to have for the climbs, and was very safety oriented during the entire time. We would definitely have him guide us again in the future. Thanks Wes.
