        Olympic Peninsula

  • Skill Level: All 
  • Season: Summer

The Olympic National Park covers over 2,000 square miles of rugged, and mostly remote and glaciated wilderness that can only be accessed on foot.  Numerous crags of varying

character and difficulty level line the edge of the wilderness - dotted along the coast line. What makes the peninsula unique is it remoteness that gives it sense of serenity - you're

likely to have the whole place to yourself, (and your guide of course). It being in a rain forest, the weather keeps most climbers at bay much of the year, but come summer 

time the whole park is full of lush green foliage and wildlife. Come climb for the day or camp out overnight before or after your climb at one of the parks many campsites and even enjoy

the locally caught seafood - it's as fresh as it gets!

named "sunshine wall," temperatures at this part of the coulee can get up to the 70's even in the middle of winter, radiating warmth all day long and making this the number 1 winter rock

climbing destination in the state.  The wide open desert-like terrain, and unique looking geological formations create quite a change of scenery and sometimes leave you feeling as though

you're on another planet. The majority of routes stick to the faces  of the columns and span the whole spectrum of difficulty from 5.5 - 5.12+. With over 1,000 documented route in the

coulee, there is plenty of adventure for everyone and our experienced guides will make sure you experience the best of it.
