7200′ and Climbing…

Nestled in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado, Pagosa Springs truly is nature’s playground. Residents share a love of all things outdoors. Weather dictates seasonality, and many citizens transition between skiing, boating, biking, and climbing. However, the transition isn’t always seamless –  when you reach peak shape for one sport, the weather changes and the next sport arrives. For some sports this is mostly unavoidable and not a major setback. Conversely in climbing, preparation is everything.

With this as the main driver, Pagosa area climbers banded together to create 7200 & Climbing, a non-profit to spearhead the development of a climbing community for the Town of Pagosa. The first project was to create Pagosa Climbing Initiative (PCI) a small indoor facility to keep technical skills sharp, muscles strong, and foster a climbing community in Pagosa.
