Watch that first step! Our AMGA guides will set safety and teach you the basics of this exciting sport.
Need a quick hit of adrenaline without all the commitment? Then this 2-hour adventure may be just the ticket. Whether you need a compliment to different, full-day adventure, to fill your docket on an Explore the Gorge All-Inclusive Vacation, or just a break when passing through the area, this one is sure to please.
We provide AMGA certified instructors, equipment you'll need to climb, including climbing shoes, which are for climbing only, helmets, harnesses, hardware and ropes. You'll need your own shoes while hiking and rappelling.
What to Bring
Comfortable shoes (no flip flops), a long sleeve shirt or jacket and long pants or shorts depending on the weather report, rain gear for rainy or windy days, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellant, drinking water and a small backpack or fanny pack.
Climbing areas are heavily regulated by the National Park Service, so group sizes are limited in any given area. Therefore large groups may need to be separated. Also, no spectators are allowed, as they add to our total number and affect our instructor to guest ratio.
Requirements & Restrictions
While rock climbing is a physically demanding sport, rappelling is not. But it will take all the courage you can muster.
Your guides and leaders will discuss specific safety requirements on site.
