Join your First Descents community for a week of breathtaking mountain views, connection, and challenge as we head to Rocky Mountain National Park to rock climb with our friends at Colorado Mountain School! With hundreds of granite faces and various peaks, Rocky Mountain National Park is truly a climber’s paradise. Whether you’re new to rock climbing or you’ve roped up before, you’ll get to enjoy four days of rock climbing instruction and epic climbs before recharging at your incredible lodge for nightly campfires and home-cooked meals.

There will be two separate weeks of Oncology Estes Park Rock Climbing programs in 2022.
