Customized Family Climbing Day

Customized Family Climbing

Make the first time on the rocks with the whole family the best it can be! Some of our guides are dads and moms too! We are experienced with youth and families and do an excellent job creating an environment in which kids, parents and grandparents can feel comfortable challenging themselves. Our guides will choose climbs suited to the ages and abilities in your family. It is possible to offer routes for beginners next to more challenging climbs for those who are already experienced. Our goal is to create a rewarding experience for your family by helping to build trust, self confidence, and lasting memories.

Climbing is for All Ages

Climbing For All Ages

Humans are natural climbers. We all start out climbing up on furniture, counters, jungle gyms, and trees. Children have a natural ability. For adults it’s often fun just to reconnect with the climber in us all. Our certified guides are trained to create a fun, safe environment for the whole family to enjoy the thrill of outdoor rock climbing while building trust and self confidence. For those with younger children or a shorter time limit, the half day trip is often a suitable time length. If your family wants to allow for more exploring of Smith Rock, and hiking from one climbing area to another, a full day is more appropriate. Join us for an unforgettable rock climbing adventure!
