Outstanding trip lead by guides Sunshine and Riggs. This trip has traversing, rappelling, bridge walks, and zip lining. It runs about 2.5 hours and will definitely get your pulse rate up. Can’t wait to do it again!

if you go to pricing and by location and choose Idaho Springs you can find the prices. The cliffside is $99 for adults and $79 for youth. Looks like they only have weekends right now as it is starting winter there.
