Join Rocky Mountain National Park’s Climbing Rangers to learn more about climbing Colorado’s Favorite 14er, Longs Peak.  This program will be held on Friday, July 7, and presented again on Friday, July 28, at 7:30 p.m. at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center. Their presentation will discuss various climbing and hiking routes and lessons learned, with a focus on how to prepare for and manage risks for a successful ascent of the classic Keyhole Route.
 
Rocky Mountain National Park’s Climbing Rangers are experienced climbers and members of the park’s Search and Rescue team. They patrol technical climbing and hiking routes on Longs Peak and elsewhere throughout the park. With decades of cumulative climbing, mountaineering, guiding, and search and rescue experience between them, they are excited to share their experience and help the public learn about the high mountain environment of Rocky Mountain National Park.  
 
This program is free and open to the public. For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park please visit www.nps.gov/romo or call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
