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.
