Alpine Jewel Via Ferrata with Keep Climbing Foundation

Jun 25, 2022
Estes Park, CO, USA

First Descents has teamed up with Keep Climbing Foundation to climb one of the most electrifying climbs in the country – Alpine Jewel’s Via Ferrata in Estes Park, CO! The Via Ferrata is a unique experience that falls somewhere between scrambling and technical rock climbing – something like a ropes course up a cliff. While it can be physically demanding, the system of cables and ladders allow even non-experienced climbers to ascend and scale large rock walls.

Tickets cost $375 and all participants are asked to fundraise a minimum of $750 in support of First Descents. Join us for an awe inspiring climb and for the chance to connect with other members of the FD community! Email [email protected] for more information.
