Testimonials for Chockstone Climbing

Enjoy Climbing

Gabe was friendly, helpful and fun to be with. He paid attention to my strengths and weaknesses and helped me. I would very much enjoy climbing with him again. I learned a lot more in one day with Gabe than I did on two past multi-day courses.


WOW!!!  Incredible day climbing with Gabe!  He did a great job keeping us on track and moving.  We managed to do both the Monkey Face and Super Slab……Gabe answered all my questions, helped me through tricky sequences, and got me up the bolt ladder.  It was the perfect day, and Gabe is obviously an excellent […]

Happy Camper

My son went to your summer camp when he was 12 or 13. It was his first time so far away from home… He came home stronger than ever and became serious about competitive climbing and progressively began doing well at comps.  Our son won US rope nationals in 2011 and is the current sport climbing […]

Personal Attention

Thank you for facilitating the “Peak Experience” as part of  our graduation over the last few seasons.  We very much appreciate your personal attention and accommodating us with the unique needs our clients.  

Awesome Guide

Eric and I had a blast. Aaron took us on the perfect route for our ability level (moderately easy) and interest (multi pitch with lots of exposure). It was exactly what we were hoping for. Also, Aaron was an awesome guide. He was super helpful and patient with us and taught us a lot. He was […]


“…….In all honesty, our commitment to climbing skyrocketed after our trip with Jim.  We’ve been climbing 3 to 4 times per week now and are climbing outside in North Bend when the weather permits.  You really got us hooked!”  


I would like to thank you for facilitating our television production of Taste for Adventure at Smith Rock.  Your enthusiasm, your friendly nature and especially your patience were all appreciated as we went through a long production day….enjoy the holidays and we look forward to working with you again on a future production!

Professional Style

It’s always a pleasure to spend a day climbing with Jim. His professional style and AMGA Certification make me feel safe, while his patience and enthusiasm encourages me to climb routes that I wouldn’t attempt on my own. Each day with Jim gives me a sense of adventure and accomplishment.


I want to thank you so much for our incredible day climbing yesterday.  I know for you it was probably a typical day at the office, but it was one of my very favorite days out.  The great thing about you as a guide is your love for climbing is so evident.  Even though you’ve […]
