A Unique Canyon and a Special Place

Experience the majestic granite walls of Unaweep Canyon for private guiding or professional instruction. A great spot to hone your crack climbing skills or to learn the intricacies of traditional climbing and multi-pitch techniques.

Learn and practice the advanced skills necesary to become a competent traditional climber. Unaweep is a great place to learn how to place traditional gear, build anchors, and lead.
Sweet Multi-Pitch in a Spectacular Setting
Sweet Sunday Serenade is one of our favorite multi-pitch routes to guide. 3 pitches of amazing granite offer 400 feet of great climbing to the top of the Sunday Wall, one of the most popular and prominent walls in Unaweep Canyon. With a rating of 5.9, Sweet Sunday Serenade is accessible to most climbers particularly because the majority of the climbing is 5.7 and 5.8 with just a few spots of 5.9. The Sundeck Ledge atop the second pitch is an airy yet secure hang with plenty of room to kick back and enjoy the views. From the Ledge, you can take your pick of a number of fine options to the top. Three rappels back to the ground complete this outstanding journey.
