Private Rock Climbing Tours

Want to try rock climbing outside? Love to climb but don’t know where to go?

Let Glacier Adventure Guides take you on a guided climbing trip. The quality of climbing in Northwest Montana is a well-kept secret. Our local wilderness is riddled with cliffs, bluffs and rocky outcrops, home to hundreds of routes with very few visitors. Our guides cater to your skill level and know exactly where to find those routes you’re sure to climb and enjoy. Our guides have decades of experience on the rock and guarantee a fun, informative time at the crags.

For our first time ever rock climbing, my friend and I spent the day with Glacier Adventure Guides and had an excellent time. Even though we booked on short notice, all details were taken care of. The guys were friendly, informative and extremely encouraging. Totally loved it and highly recommend them. –Renee, via tripadvisor.com
