Learn to Lead

Become a confident and safe lead-climber with our AMGA certified climbing guides.

This is it, the big show!  Put your skills to the test as our certified guides teach you how to transition to being a safe and confident lead climber.

Lead climbing is to top-roping as college is to high-school: When you become a lead climber, you get to experience more diverse things, gain a lot of freedom, and have a lot more fun than you did back in those top-roping days when you had to wait for another climber to take you everywhere.

Of course, such freedom carries a lot of responsibility, and there is nobody better to give you the skills to lead safely and responsibly than CMRCA.

Safe, highly trained, lead climbing experience

While this group costs more than the competitors group, I was able to observe Gee's technique against the other outfits guides and Gee was much safer and practiced under the Colorado Mountain School (US) standards.

CMRCA is the best!

I can say that going out to Crazy Horse Was by far one of the highlights of my trip.

Safe, professional and fun

Crazy Horse is a great location to do a climbing course and CMRCA have great guides.

Intro to Caving was great!
