Mazama is one of the best places in Washington to learn to rock climb or improve your climbing ability by focusing on technical skills. We create a safe, positive, and effective learning environment for climbers of all abilities. There are a number of routes in the beginner to moderate grades to chose from, which we have used to help hundreds of climbers find their way in this vertical environment.
One of the benefits of working with a small guide service is our ability to customize a day to your needs. Are you looking to improve your climbing movement? Interested in learning to lead? Want to learn safe and efficient multi-pitch techniques? We can discuss goals and bring you further in your climbing abilities.
Our climbing days meet in Mazama where we review gear and goals for the day. We have harnesses, ropes, climbing shoes, helmets, and belay devices for your use. If desired, we can provide more specialized gear for specific programs. A short drive brings us to a local crag to begin introductory climbing classes - from basic skills including belaying and climbing movement to more specific skills such as learning how to lead. On full-day programs, we often have the time to introduce and practice rappelling skills. After a day of climbing and practicing skills, we say goodbye and everyone can enjoy a nice meal by the river or stay at the crag and continue practicing.
This trip does not require any previous climbing experience. Be prepared to learn new skills, challenge yourself, and push boundaries!
