The Mazamas offers a variety of classes for all ability levels. Learn new skills in mountaineering, rock climbing, first aid, ski mountaineering, and more.
Fee includes the cost of camping 2 nights at Cougar Rock Campground. Park entrance fee is not covered.
The weekend consists of two days of climbing: Castle-Pinnacle one day and other Tatoosh peaks the other day, including scrambles of nearby Plummer, Lane, Denman and more if we choose to. NOTE - the day 2 schedule no longer includes Mt. Wow!
Castle-Pinnacle will each feature 5th class protected rock climbs, from 5.4 - 5.6.
Applying for this activity means you will be on both climbs if accepted.
Although neither climbing day is particularly physically demanding (famous last words :)), the combination of climbing two consecutive days can be. As part of your training regime for the climbs, you should do consecutive day hikes in the Gorge with a typical climbing-weight pack.
