When the weather heats up, rock climbers head to elevation to beat the heat. Alpine rock climbing takes your cragging skills to the next level, requiring solid movement skills in 4th and low-5th class rock, and employs a rope for short belays and steeper more difficult pitches. Alpine climbing typically provides a more solitary experience in locations that achieve birds-eye views and require continuous climbing.

There are areas all over Oregon that afford excellent alpine rock climbing in accessible settings. On the second day of your alpine climbing course you may explore the Cascades on Mt. Washington, Three Fingered Jack or Broken Top, or climb in the Marsupial Crags high above Smith Rock State Park.

This is a 2-day course designed for beginners, and your guide will adjust the itinerary based on your level of experience and performance. On Day 1 you’ll do a basic multi-pitch climb. On day 2 your alpine objective will be determined by you and your guide.

This program can be scheduled any day of the week, but the Cascades summits can only be scheduled Monday through Thursday until after Labor Day weekend because of limitations on all commercial permits in the Dechutes-Willamette National Forest. Weekend programs will climb alpine-style routes in the Marsupials area, overlooking Smith Rock State Park.

"Ben from Smith Rock Climbing is awesome. Was impressed at how great he was with our kids, creating an amazing first climbing experience for them."

"We did a family climbing trip to Smith Rock State Park with this outfit and had a fantastic time. Aaron was our guide and was incredibly patient, encouraging, and skilled with us and our three kids ages 12, 10, & 8. All the equipment was provided and we felt very safe. It was a very positive experience for us and we enjoyed a great day at the crags. Don't miss a chance to climb this spectacular park. Well worth it !"

"I have climbed twice with them at Smith Rock, and both times have been outstanding. Cliff is a great guide and a blast to spend a day with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to climb out there, or on Hood."
