Rocky Mountain National Park is currently in the planning phase of developing a Commercial Services Strategy for guided commercial climbing in the park. This summer the park solicited comment and input from a variety of different stakeholders. This feedback was evaluated and is being used to continue to develop the park's strategy. It is estimated that less than 1% of total climbing in the park results from guided climbing; the remainder comes from private, non-commercial use.
To apply for a limited technical climbing CUA permit, a complete application packet must be submitted to the park's concession office a minimum of one month in advance of the first client day. Applications are currently being accepted. These limited guided climbing CUA permits are only for 2015 and companies should only anticipate operating in the park during the 2015 calendar year.
For a limited-trip CUA application packet or for any questions about the permits and the application process, please contact the park's Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
