Smith Rock Climbing Guides, Inc. provides climbing instruction and guide services for visitors of all ages and experience levels, seven days a week. 

Prices for any of our services are based on the number of people in your group and whether you choose the half-day or full-day option.  Our clients climb in the state park’s famous main climbing area, which offers hundreds of routes for all ability levels ranging in height from 40 to 400 feet.  Top-quality equipment rental is included.  In order to provide the best experience possible for your ability and comfort level, we won’t mix you with another group unless that is what ​both groups request. 

Providing top-notch rock climbing guide services for over 20 years.

Keep in mind that we can customize the day to your specific interests, and we are permitted to guide all areas of Smith Rock State Park.  If you don’t see exactly what you want, just let us know what we can do for you!

Our Services

Instructional Courses

We have designed several instructional courses for those interested in the technical aspects of rock climbing. The emphasis is with hands-on teaching, and our goal is to create self-sufficient and confident climbers.

The Basics

This course will give you a great head start on becoming a safe and competent climber.

Lead Climbing

Tie into the “sharp end” of the rope with confidence after learning to lead climb with one of our Guides.

Traditional Climbing

Alpine Peaks, desert towers and many Smith Rock classics require specialized skills and gear.

Multi-pitch Climbing

Onward and upward! The further you are off the ground, the more you need to know.

Aid Climbing

Even the steepest and blankest rock becomes possible when you know how to aid climb.

Self Rescue

Climbers of all ability levels should know how to get themselves and their climbing partners out of a jam.
