Hi everybody!

my name’s Tyler and I am looking to gain some experience in the Rope Access world. Moved to Denver and got my certification last year and have been looking for employment ever since. If anyone has any leads on companies looking to hire I would be endlessly grateful for a heads up. Willing to relocate for months at a time.

When I did this work it was with a company called Yenter. They are in Golden I believe.

The nature of their business is retaining walls and scaling. Both pretty satisfying jobs but hard.

So some of the work you would be doing is on the ground drilling and building spray concrete walls. Extremely physical work.

The scaling side is building and maintaining rockfall fences. Possibly even more physical work.

It’s difficult construction work. With difficult construction coworkers. The rope is a teeny tiny piece of work.

I think windmills are a little more “highbrow” but they are in the middle of nowhere.

I’m so glad I went back to school.

The IATSE dudes I know in Denver have moved to different things. One is doing AV work at a nightclub and the other is on the road rigging festival shows. 

Crew One out of Nashville places guys on the road, try reaching out to them.

You aren't going to find much rope access work locally because almost all work in this industry is travel based. If you want local rigging work (fall arrest not really rope work) hit up Rhino and do production rigging. Master Point is based here but you will travel for work. Winter is generally slow for RA work but there is always something going on. Pretty much just google rope access companies and call them all up, there are too many to list. I will say that having worked for Ropeworks for years it is a great company if you want to do wind / summer seasonal work.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
