Share the Adventure
These are formative years. The legacy you build with your son will shape him for the rest of his life. Four days spent rock climbing and backpacking will leave a mark that goes beyond the impact of social media. Your future relationship with your son will be built on something. Whether that foundation is solid or not is up to you. Build it right. Build it outside while climbing and backpacking through stunning terrain. You'll connect on a whole different level while scaling vertical cliffs. You'll have the time amidst gorgeous backdrops and rocky mountain passes to share your heart and cast vision for the future. The story you write with your son matters and we want to help you write it.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does a typical backpacking day look like / how many hours are we expected to hike per day?
Typically the group will hike from 3-7 miles with anywhere from 500-2,000ft of elevation gain over easy terrain. On a typical day the hike will take 2-5 hours. We design these trips at the introductory level. Often, groups will leave camp around 9-10am and get to the next camp around 3pm. That leaves time to setup camp, explore the area, or play in the river.
How many other “Father/Son” teams are you expecting to get in this group?
We cap the groups at 5 father/son pairs.
Getting from Denver airport to your facility, is there a shuttle or otherwise what is the recommended transport for here?
Transport from DIA to our office is quite easy as there is a train that goes all the way to the airport and costs $9 per traveler. Only one transfer needs to be made.
