Private Climbs

Our Expertise at Your Convenience

Private guides for groups, individualized training and specific peaks can be arranged by calling our office. Private training provides a wonderful opportunity for personalized programs from beginning to advanced levels and the chance to develop skills at your own pace. We run numerous private trips each season; most commonly:

  • 4-6 day Training Courses in North Cascades

  • Summit climbs of Mt. Baker, Shuksan, Eldorado, Glacier Peak and other classics of the Cascades
  • Rock Climbing Courses
