There is a minimum of 3 participants required per departure date. Do not make travel arrangements until Chockstone Climbing has confirmed your departure.
If you're flying, please arrive by 1:00 pm. Your guides will greet you at the Bend/Redmond airport. If you're driving, meet your group on the grassy lawn near the visitors center at Smith Rock State Park. The day's activities will begin at 2:00 pm.
Basic rock climbing skills are necessary, and all guests should be able to climb a 5.6 grade comfortably.
Each group has a maximum of 12 climbers.
You’ll be sleeping in your own personal tent at a local campground near Smith Rock State Park (please bring your own sleeping bag and pad). It is a primitive campground with no running water and campfires are not permitted.
Most meals are included, with the exception of dinner at the Terrebonne Depot. Breakfasts on climbing days are serve-yourself, with bagels, cream cheese, hot and cold cereals, coffee and tea. Breakfast on the day of departure is a heartier style with eggs and potatoes.
Lunches are build-your-own, with sandwich fixings available including turkey, ham, roast beef, cheese, lettuce, peanut butter and jelly, plus carrot sticks, apples, and an assortment of bars and fruit leathers.
Dinner on the first night is pesto pasta with organic chicken sausage and lots of grilled veggies and salad, with cookies for dessert. Dinner on the second night will either be a taco bar or Thai curry. Both of the included dinners have an selection of local beers, sparkling waters, and Pellegrino for drinks. Dinner on the last night will be at a local restaurant, the Terrebonne Depot, where everyone buys their own food and drinks.
Chockstone supplies all of the climbing equipment you’ll need, including a harness, helmet, and climbing shoes. You’re welcome to bring your own gear, if you prefer. You’ll need to bring your own clothing (shorts, tights, loose-fitting pants, or sweatpants are appropriate), as well as a backpack with a water bottle, sunscreen, hat, and extra lightweight, packable clothing. Rugged outdoor footwear is recommended.
Most expenses are included in the trip price, but you'll need to bring additional money for dinner and drinks at Terrebonne Depot on day 3 as well as gratuities for the guides.
We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance for all trips. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement if you are forced to cancel your trip for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to cover medical help, emergency transport, and/or theft or accidental damage while traveling. For travel insurance, we recommend VisitorsCoverage as a provider.
We recommend you visit the local government websites where you plan to travel and review the required documentation for entry, current restrictions, and general recommendations for travel within the area. We encourage you to also visit your home country's embassy website if you are traveling to a foreign country. Requirements can change rapidly. Please be sure you stay abreast of the requirements and restrictions for anywhere you plan to visit. You can also enroll in the U.S. government’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) and you will be sent updates if the situation in your destination changes. You can find the program link at https://step.state.gov/.
