Our four day trip to Boston Basin (or Eldorado Peak, if permits are limited) is recommended for people who want to experience the full gamut of classic alpine climbing. Both areas have a number of peaks and routes such as Sharkfin Tower, Sahale Peak, Dorado Needle and the well known Forbidden Peak. Climbing any of these routes requires a sound application of many of the skills required for alpine climbing.

The itinerary for this trip will be custom designed for your group and we can base our choice of routes on participant’s abilities and climbing goals. There are routes of all levels of difficulty available on the peaks in this area.

"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."
