Private Rock Climbing Tours
Want to try rock climbing outside? Love to climb but don’t know where to go?
Book a climbing tour or lesson with Glacier Adventure Guides. The climbing up here in northwest Montana is a well-kept secret. Many routes lie on hidden cliffs, bluffs and rocky outcrops nestled in the forest. We’ll find you routes you’re sure to climb and enjoy.
Tours are private and catered to your skill level. Our guides are certified single pitch instructors through the AMGA and have decades of experience on the rock. We 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

Glacier Adventure Guides leads climbing day trips to Stone Hill.
The crags at Stone Hill above Lake Koocanusa offer some of the highest quality rock climbing in northwest Montana. Soaring, black quartzite bluffs distinguish the area from the densely forested foothills surrounding it. Stone Hill is known for its smooth texture, thin holds and dead-vertical faces. If you’re looking for a unique climbing getaway, let us show you the best of what Stone Hill has to offer.
