“Justin is phenomenal my girlfriend and I took a trip to Colorado as we are both outdoor lovers, however, we had never hiked before. Justin’s energy, communication style, and professionalism are second to none. Justin was fun, patient, and did everything within his will to ensure we felt safe, comfortable, and took great photos. When you book with Justin and his team understand you are paying for culture, experience, and memories that we will love forever!! If you’re searching around for guides your search ends here these guys are the best in town…Hands Down!!”

“Leila is the best! My climbing trip at Garden of the Gods was the highlight of my Colorado trip. I had some prior climbing experience and Leila was able to pick the perfect routes for me. With her encouragement and guidance, I was able to complete my very first multi-pitch route and it was incredible! I ended up extending my half-day session to the full 6 hours because I was having such a great time.
Leila was extremely knowledgeable, patient, professional, and fun! She made me feel comfortable, safe, and confident. Spending the day climbing with Leila was a blast and I will definitely be hiring her again the next time I am visiting. I highly recommend Leila and Front Range Climbing Company!”
