Love Climbing was founded in the late eighties by Kevin Rusk, who was amongst the many who helped develop local climbing. He sold the business to Dave Fix in the mid nineties, who for years ran a local climbing gym in addition to the guide service, as well as, adding to the local climbing. In 2008, Fix sold the business to current owner Patrick Meyer, who moved to the Steamboat area in 2004 and began guiding for the company. Since taking over the business, Patrick has focused on local community climbing and local commercial guiding.
We are group of climbers and skiers who call Steamboat Springs in the Yampa Valley home. We live here because we love this place and we guide here because we love sharing our passion. We strive to provide guests an amazing experience customized to their expectations.
The mission of Love Climbing is to provide safe, positive and instructional climbing trips for beginner climbers to the aspiring lead climber. RMV promotes responsible and safe climbing techniques as well as environmental awareness and ‘Leave No Trace’ principles. RMV strives to provide a common ground and voice for all different types of climbers in the Steamboat Springs.
