Thank you for the unforgettable experiences, we met some fantastic people too! -S.M.

"Glad to have this as part of Colorado Springs."

"I went to the last climb night that was held at Cityrock. It is a great introduction to the facility and climbing. Also, the volunteers make sure that you aren't feeling uneasy about climbing. If you are not climbing, one of them will come to you and find an area that is good for you. TJ is very patient and helped me make it to the top! I loved it! Thanks for offering this event to the community."

"My family and I just had our first experience with Upadowna this weekend at their Folk and Flannel fundraiser event. We had a great time as we learned about this awesome organization! The only thing we wish was different was that we had been a part of this organization sooner!"

"Such a great event (Folk'n'Flannel)! I really appreciate everyone who volunteered and worked to make the event a success. In particular I enjoyed the musical performances - I've always been a fan of Roma Ransom, and now I've added The River Arkansas to my list of must-see bands."

"Fantastic! Thanks for all you’re doing!  My boyfriend & I attended one of your climbing events a while back, and it really opened his mind to something he didn’t realize he liked.  You are making a positive difference in the community; thanks for that!" -Shelley H.

"Thanks for a great climb night on Tuesday! I had a great time, and it was fun meeting everyone and trying something new." -Tami O.

"Thank you for creating these opportunities! The entire UpaDowna experience has enriched our lives in a way I could never imagine. It's special and I hope you understand how much I cherish it!" -Sarah K.

"We had a great time and discovered a whole new set of trails to ride on!! What an awesome organization!!" -Chrysauna P.

"Thanks to the patience of many but especially Mark and Luke my 6yo, Lydia, learned how to ride her bike after her training wheels broke on the pedal party ride! Thank you UpaDowna for fostering an environment that truly made us feel welcome!" -Corrie C.
