About Chockstone Climbing Guides

Share a fun memorable rock climbing day that incorporates your groups goals

Corporate Team
  • We can design one to three day outings or a progression of outings/activities over time.
  • Seasoned Smith Rock guides and instructors experienced in working with all ages and a broad base of programing goals,  experiential learning and therapeutic models.
  • Customize itineraries to suit your needs and goals, maintain a safe, supportive environment for learning.
  • We maintain a low client to guide ratio to ensure attention and quality; 5 climbers / 1 guide

There are some experiences and lessons that just can’t be gained in the classroom or workplace. Rock climbing can be a great teaching tool for personal growth, as well as a fun activity to foster positive self-confidence, trust, teamwork, expanding comfort zones, practice challenge by choice and general physical health.

Scouts BSA and GSA Troops

Let Chockstone Climbing Guides assist your troop in gaining outdoor rock climbing skills, build confidence and have fun on the rocks. Our guides have worked with BSA troops from all over the northwest since 1999. We can give the opportunity to learn, practice and test the skills necessary to fulfill the criteria of the Climbing Merit Badge. For those that have mastered the basic skills, we can offer more advanced climbing skills curriculum, guided trips, and challenging climbing routes.

Professional Development and Team Building

Professional Development and Team Building

Share a memorable, fun, bonding experience that you can bring back to the workplace. Rock climbing can be a great activity to stimulate individual challenge and is a great way to analyze and shape how we work together as a team or group. Getting out of the everyday work environment can be an insightful tool, offering a new perspective on problem solving and relationships. We can tailor your climbing day and facilitate activities that support your companies’ goals and needs.

Physical ability

We welcome all experience levels. No previous climbing experience or special training is required to enjoy a fun, rock climbing experience.

  • Comfortable, confident hiking on trails and uneven terrain

  • We will choose appropriate climbs to suit your needs and ability.
