About Us

Narrow Ridge, LLC is an adventure recreation guide service located in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. Narrow Ridge is owned and managed by Curt Howell, a professional outdoor educator and guide with twenty years of experience in outdoor recreation. Narrow Ridge was established in 2021 as the first locally owned professional climbing guide service in the San Luis Valley. In May 2022, Narrow Ridge purchased Mountain Man Rafting which has been running rafting trips on the Upper Rio Grande since 1985. Together, we are the premier source for guided outdoor adventure experiences and instruction in the San Luis Valley.
