Our Half-day program is a great way to try out rock climbing in a guided setting. It’s great for kids and families who don’t want to spend the entire day fighting gravity. There are two half-day climbing programs available each day, beginning at 8 am and 2 pm respectively. It’s important to arrive on time to make the most of your outing.

Our guides will select a climbing area close to the parking at Smith Rock State Park to maximize your climbing time. We usually use an area within a short 15-minute walk where we have several routes to choose from. Once you’re there, the focus is on getting you up on the wall for as much as you can fit into 4 hours. We’ll get you back to your car in time for your afternoon plans.

This program is also an excellent choice in the heat of summer, when an early evening climbing session can be the best way to beat the heat.  This program will usually last about 4 hours from start to finish. Your guides are always ready to adjust their planned itinerary based on your interests and ability-level. Smith Rock State Park offers world-class climbing for every level of climber, from those who have never touched rock or rope before, to those from far-away who have come here specifically for the world-class sport climbing of the main formation and the unlimited crack climbing of the Lower Gorge.

Half days are offered from 8 am-12 pm, or from 2-6 pm.

"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."
