Smith Rock is the birthplace of American sport climbing. Come and explore it with us. Enjoy spring temperatures on warm rock in one of the most iconic climbing areas in the USA. There are nearly 2000 routes with incredible variety to choose from. Immerse yourself for a weekend in this great climbing culture while improving your multi pitch climbing skills on some "uber-classic" routes.
Our Smith Rock Climbing Course is designed to take your sport climbing skills to the multi pitch level. You will get to do this in one of the most legendary climbing areas in the Pacific North West. If you enjoy rock climbing with scenic views of deep river canyons, Smith Rock State Park is the place for you. There are several thousand climbs in the park. More than a thousand are bolted routes and we are sure that we can find some excellent routes for you.
The day before the course starts: We will meet in Terre Bonne in the late afternoon, do a quick gear check and proceed to our camping spot in the vicinity of Smith Rock State Park.
Day 1: This day will give us the opportunity to review some basics. We will cover:
Day 2: It is now time to get a little higher ofj the ground and use our new found skills in a multi pitch scenario. This could happen on super classic moderate routes such as "First Kiss", "Wherever I may roam" or another of all the classic multi pitch routes in the Park.
Day 3: Let's do this again. Transitions, anchor and rope management and efficient climbing take time. There will definitely be enough time to debrief the course over beer before we conclude our Smith Rock Climbing Course.
We will be camping in a nearby campground. Your camping equipment and food is not included in the equipment list.
