An Introduction to the World of Mountaineering
The ACA Mountaineering team is proud to present our newest, and most robust, program yet! The Couch to Climbing program will take you to heights you never imagined. Spanning a total of 8 months, 7 online sessions, and 4 in-person “applications,” there’s sure to be something for everyone to discover!
During your Couch to Climbing journey, you’ll be able to participate in any number of our four Modules, each of which consists of two online learning sessions, followed by a larger Application Day, where you can put your newfound skills to the test. The best part: you can participate in as many or as few areas of the program as you want! Just sign up for the sections you’ll most enjoy. A full listing of the modules can be found broken down below.
Along with this program, you’ll have full access to the Altitude Chasers, ACA’s primary mountaineering and climbing team. The team offers over 100 years of combined experience, including the famous author of Colorado’s 14ers, Gerry Roach. You’ll be able to access and tap into years of knowledge about mountaineering, climbing, and training with special 1-on-1 consultations with the team, as well as help with planning trips and adventures of your own. Kevin Donovan, the program leader, will be on standby to help you through this amazing experience and make it your own!
We hope to see you out there during this year of stewardship and community.
