Kevin Capps, a Golden, Colorado local, spends most of his time leading guided rock climbing trips on the Front Range through his guide service, Denver Mountain Guiding. He has a deep passion for the sport and sharing it with others. Since arriving to the Front Range in 2010, he has developed a desire for establishing new routes in the area, and since then has developed over 150 routes in Colorado and across the U.S. For over a decade, Vibram rubber is the only rubber he trusts to deliver that reliable, high-end performance. "Being able to guide climbers of all ability levels for a living is a life well-lived for me. Whether it’s first-timers or The First Flatiron, or a guided ascent of The Diamond on Long’s Peak, helping others accomplish their goals in the vertical world is my greatest accomplishment."
