Profile #1: Colorado Mountain School

The Colorado Mountain School (or Club, as it was called in the 90’s) has been working with Sterling practically since the beginning. We’re proud to have a partnership that dates all the way back to 1994.

“Our relationship with Sterling is built on decades of mutual respect. When Colorado Mountain School guides climb rock, ice and mountains, they have high demands. From tough weather conditions in Rocky Mountain National Park to day-after-day use in the crags of Boulder and Denver, we put gear through the ringer. That's why we only choose the best static and dynamic rope and cord. That's why we partner with Sterling. 

As a partner, we appreciate how open and receptive Sterling is to our feedback, which ultimately benefits us and our clients through cutting-edge product enhancements. Sterling's high-quality innovations enable us to explore the mountains.“ - Simon Montgomery, Head of Growth & Marketing
