4 HEART-PUMPING (BUT SAFE) ROCK CLIMBING ADVENTURES TO TAKE THIS SUMMER

Telluride Via Ferrata; Telluride, CO

Thanks to the late Chuck Kroger, an iconic Telluride climber and ironworker, the thrilling open-air traverse along the southwest face of 12,785-foot Ajax Peak is accessible to anyone who can handle heights. The out-and-back adventure starts out on a challenging hiking path (be on the lookout for the plaque honoring Kroger), which quickly turns into a narrow ledge before vanishing completely. The toughest stretch, known as the Main Event, is a 300-foot horizontal expanse over some 200 feet of open air.
