The environment in the greater Seattle area is world renowned for its green landscape, endless forests, and fresh air. What better way to see it than from the tops of its most notable rocks!

With this two day program, we start early on both days to make the most of our time. You will have instruction in top-rope anchors, protection placement, rope management, and so much more.

Index Town Walls is a top tier destination for climbing, so we will aim for a course here or in a similar setting. By providing only the best locations, you can practice each skill you learn in the most productive way. We will primarily use single-pitch routes to review techniques and progress our abilities throughout the course.

The first day focuses on learning and practicing what we are learning, while the second day concentrates on applying those fundamentals and possibly even performing a lead climb without top-rope protection. There is plenty to discover and experience in this course. This is a great chance to move ahead in rock climbing and become comfortable lead climbing.

This area is our home and we love sharing its magic with fellow climbers. Our programs are safe, fun, and ensure you leave the rock with a sense of accomplishment. You will be climbing the mountains with a local knowledge by the time the program is over on the second day. You have the opportunity to use the skills you acquire here on future climbs all over the world.

You need previous rock climbing experience to participate in this program. You should be in good shape and be mentally prepared for the obstacles of a two-day rock climbing program as well.

What people are saying about Miyar



Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.


Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.


Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.


I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!


Myself and my daughter climbed Mt. Baker with Miyar Adventures via Easton Glacier route, Simon was our guide. The whole experience was epic in many ways. Simon's knowledge is excellent, I would trust him 100% in any situations that may come up on the mountain. We learned a lot and it was fun. The overall organization from Miyar was great (including informational emails from Jake and communication with Sandeep). Great company that I would choose again in a heartbeat.
