Rock climbing in the Pikes Peak Region is world renowned with some of the most beautiful and challenging rock formations. Colorado has sunshine 300 days of the year and the temperatures are mild enough for year-round rock climbing. Make sure you get a permit, and you can take on the tallest rock walls inside Garden of the Gods Park. Never been climbing before? Front Range Climbing Company can teach beginners how to climb.
Cave of the Winds

There are 3 different cave tours, and families have a choice of adventures both inside and outside of the caves. There is also the Wind Walker Challenge Course, a ropes course hanging over the edge of Williams Canyon 600 feet up, the Bat-A-Pult zipline, and the Terror-Dactyl that launches you 200 feet into the canyon at 100 miles per hour.
