Colorado Extreme Experience Ranked as One of Nation’s Best “New Attractions”
USA Today recently released its “Reader’s Choice” listing of the top 10 “new attractions” across the country for 2021 and a place in Colorado made the cut.
According to their final ranking, The scale of the clouds at the Kent Mountain Adventure Center in Estes Park, Colo., landed 8th on the list.
The Cloud Ladder Experience is a via ferrata that climbs to 625 feet, making it the steepest and most vertical via ferrata in North America. The ‘guided only’ experience offers plenty of exposure, allowing those unfamiliar with standard technical climbing protection techniques to still have a ‘big wall’ experience.
While the ‘Cloud Ladder’ route is designed for more experienced climbers, the original via ferrata route in the region – The pilgrim ridge – is designed for beginners and those new to the sport.
You will find more information on booking a place to climb the Cloud Ladder route here, with an estimated trip of four to five hours at a cost of $ 249 per person for groups of two or more.
The top-ranked attraction on USA Today’s list of best “new attractions” was the “SkyFly: Soar America” experience in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, which is a “flying theater ride”.
