Rock Climb + The Numbers Details

Have an action-packed day with two of Colorado’s favorite summer mountain activities! Enjoy the best intermediate/advanced whitewater and rock climbing in one convenient package! Learn the basics of climbing or expand your skills - we'll start out the morning getting your heart pumping on the rock face. Our experienced guides will get you oriented if it's your first time and help you find the more adventurous sections if you've been climbing before.

You'll have the chance to try out several different climbing routes before breaking for lunch, and then you’ll experience some of the best Colorado whitewater.

After lunch, it's time to hit the river and take on the notorious Numbers!  Each advanced whitewater rapid is punctuated by continuous whitewater on this exhilarating section, including a steep ledge drop into No. 5.  The Numbers rafting offers narrow channels, steep drops, and technical maneuverings as you travel through boulder-strewn canyons and gorgeous valleys, makes this rafting trip one to remember!

The settlers near this stretch of the river were so intimidated that they just numbered the rapids instead of naming them.

With the snowcapped mountains of the Collegiate Peaks in the distance, the area’s picturesque views are sure to blow you away. If you are an experienced rafter or rock climber looking to take it to the next level or an adventurous beginner up for a new challenge this is the trip for you!
