    X Rock 

    X Rock provides a great day for the individual or group looking for some fun on the rock.  It is a perfect venue for the beginner climber and for those that have climbed outside before.  Ascend the sandstone cliffs overlooking beautiful Durango! Our half days outings are 4 hours on the rock and full day outings are 8 hours.  

    East Animas 

    East Animas is the local Durango climbing venue and hang out.  From introductory single pitch climbs to more advanced multi pitch classics, East Animas has a climb for everyone.  Both the lengths of the climbs as well as the difficulty vary more than X Rock. “East A” as the locals call it has a longer approach than X Rock but the views and climbs are well worth it!
