Types of Guided Trips


Steep snow and alpine-ice routes that require a rope, and sometimes a second ice-axe.


Mixed routes have a bit of everything; climbing water-ice, rock, snow and complex glaciers.


Alpine rock climbs of all difficulties. Routes often follow ridgelines and have long approaches.


Glacier climbs that require crevasse navigation, rope-teams and rescue skills.



Skiing is the main objective of the day, or a significant part of the descent.

Mt Hood


Standing 11,239 feet above the mighty Columbia River, Oregon’s highest peak is a great location to learn and practice basic alpine climbing techniques. It's also a great place to return as your skills develop. Many local climbers take advantage of the easy access to attempt advanced routes with relatively light day-packs.


Fundamental Skills for Mountain Travel

Building the skills to travel in the mountains takes time. Climbing with a skilled mentor speeds up that process. Our guides can help you develop your confidence and refine your knowledge.


Peaks of the Pacific Northwest

Volcanoes and granite-towers dominate the skyline. Glaciers and rivers carve the valleys. Huge trees shade the approaches. Come see what climbing in the Cascades is all about.
