Climbing

Aspen has incredible rock and ice climbing areas, which you can find as close as just 15 minutes from town up Independence Pass. Also recently revived is the "in-town" climbing location of Gold Butte where Cemetery Lane and McClain Flats meet. From beginning bouldering and simple top-rope climbing to expert multi-pitch routes on plentiful granite crags, local climbing guides will take any skill set to the next level. If the weather turns south or you are wanting to keep your stamina up during winter, check out the indoor climbing tower at the Aspen Recreation Center or 3,100 square feet of climbing surface at the Red Brick Recreation Center.

Hiking

Hiking our trails is probably the most accessible way for visitors to get in touch with nature.  Whether you choose to go at it alone or hire a guide, there is a hike for every age and ability.  Local guides, listed below, can take you on an adventure testing your physical stamina or simply to inform you on the local flora and fauna.
