Climb in Rocky Mountain National Park with DMG

Summer Climbs

People travel from all over the world to experience the many granite faces and various peaks found in Rocky Mountain National Park. Truly a climber’s paradise, The Park has climbing adventures for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never had a harness on before and want to experience this national park in a whole new way, or you’d like our help taking your climbing to a whole new level - we have programs for everyone. Standing at 14,249 feet tall, Longs Peak is an icon of RMNP. This peak provides a challenging 14’er experience in any month of the year and the dramatic “Diamond” face is a prized goal for any climber.
