Location:Marsupial Crags

The Marsupials Traverse is a uniqe mix of bolted sport climbing, and traversing a knife-edge ridge with the occasional bolt. The ridge climbing is simple, exposed, and has lots of up and down climbing. The views of Smith Rock and the Cascades are some of the best in all of Oregon. This route is not to be missed – a mix between alpine-style rock and desert tower climbing, it will help you build skills that transcend the disciplines of climbing.

Marsupial Traverse

Marsupial Crags

This is an alpine-style climb with a relatively short approach, near a popular climbing area. Although it is a day-climb, you will feel like you’ve stepped into the mountains. We’ll find ourselves alone on a narrow ridgeline tagging summit after summit until we toss the ropes for a single hanging rappel to take us back to the ground after what feels like miles of exposed climbing.

Elevation:3,597 feet
Style:Alpine rock up to 5.8
Skill Level:Difficult

"I am very happy with my TMG experience. The guides were professional, personable, and extremely concerned about safety. . . I absolutely give highest marks to these guys. If you don't have much Alpine experience, or just want the security of seasoned veterans guiding you up this mountain, then I strongly recommend you sign up with them. Thanks, guys, for a great experience!!"

"What a fantastic experience gaining the summit of a mountain we've gazed on from Portland for 25 years! . . . We learned a great deal, had a ton of fun, felt in very capable hands, and had the reward of summiting on a beautiful clear day. The value of being with a professional, certified, guide and guiding organization was evident throughout. Kudos to the TMG team who were responsive, supportive, and fun to work with every step of the way."

"We booked 2-day overnight program on Mt. Hood with Timberline Mountain Guides. Our guides were great, . . super friendly and reputable. The program did not go as planned due to inclement weather but we still had fun and good experience. The guides were definitely flexible and provided guidance during the trip. I would recommend going with them if it's your first climbing trip on Mt. Hood for sure."
