I'll be visiting CO (specifically Colordao Springs, Boulder, RMNP/Estes Park, and Denver) from 6/29-7/4. While in those cities, I would like to rock climb and take a hot air balloon ride. I've never climbed before, so I'm looking for a good location and company that offers beginning tours/expeditions. While I know learning the technique is important, I really want the opportunity to climb. As for hot air ballooning, which city would offer the best scenic views? Any thoughts/feedback greatly appreciated.
