Join AVA for a thrilling Rock Climb + Rafting adventure in beautiful Buena Vista! Spend half the day rock climbing with our experienced guides with your safety in mind. No matter what your experience level, our instructors can offer beginner routes with heavy instruction or simply point the way to more advanced routes for experienced climbers. You will learn the basics of belaying, rappelling & setting anchors. Whether you want to learn more about the sport or you just want to give it a try, our trips are perfect for you.
After a few hours of climbing, you’ll head back to our Outpost for a delicious chicken fajita lunch.
The other half of your day you’ll work to negotiate the intermediate whitewater rapids of the classic Browns Canyon.

For AVA’s Browns Canyon Half Day + Rock Climb package, we will provide all the equipment you need for a successful day of adventure. Refer to our suggested items list on extra little things you should consider bringing, but AVA will take care of the rest – including wetsuits and splash jackets at no extra charge.
Overall I would highly recommend AVA as your adventure guides in beautiful Buena Vista. Our zipline guides were cracking jokes the whole time and really made the experience that much better. On the way home we stopped at a hamburger/milkshake shop called K’s, recommended by our climbing guide, and it was just the thing we needed for the drive home. The guides provide excellent, fun, and safe services for you and tips are encouraged.
