OVERVIEW

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.
