Our rock climbing trips are the San Juan Outdoor School Adventures’ signature experience. Designed for all ages and abilities from 4 year-olds to seasoned mountaineers, our Telluride rock climbing adventures give you the chance to try out your spider skills on real alpine rock.

Even if you’ve never entertained the idea of getting vertical, consider this we offer comfortable first-time climbing experiences for even our most timid guests. Our professional guides will instruct you in the use of harnesses, ropes and technical climbing equipment, you can explore the vertical realm with the assistance of a qualified and nurturing guide. These trips provide you with an adventurous way of exploring the beauty of our region.

We have teamed up with Life Feeling Photography. A USDS fully-permitted Adventure Photographer. Contact Matt Kroll at www.lifefeelingphotography.com so you can go home with profesional photos of your Telluride Adventure.
