Rock Climbing at Smith Rock

Smith Rock, OR

Explore towering volcanic cliffs, a meandering river flowing through a picturesque valley, and the cascade volcanoes of the Three Sisters rising up in the background. Camp under an incomparable sea of stars and experience the world-class climbing area that reinvented the sport of climbing.

Smith Rock provides easy routes as well as some of the hardest in the world, so we will find the perfect route for you! If you have never climbed outdoors before this is a great place to start, but you can also build your strength as a seasoned climber. This Voyage not only includes climbing and hiking around Smith Rock, but also one bonus day of floating down the Deschutes River.
