Type of Trip
Try this discipline for the first time or practice specific techniques while in the great outdoors with my full-day rock climbing courses!
Depending on your availability, I offer different venues in Oregon and Washington state. You could choose between Exit 38, Frenchman Coulee, Mount Erie, Index, Broughton Bluff, or Smith Rock. We’ll find the venue that best adapts to your wishes and level!
These 4-hour climbing sessions will allow you to try new techniques on the rocks in the company of an experienced guide. Bring friends or family along and I’ll put together a private course just for you!
Because this is a custom course, we can accommodate varying levels of climbing ability. We’ll set goals together and make sure you achieve them during the session. We can also arrange for half-day or multi-day courses so don’t hesitate to ask for what would work best for you.
Advanced climbers should also check out my rock climbing courses for experts. They are a great way to take your climbing skills up a notch!
Contact me regarding my full-day courses or if you’d like to arrange for a multi-day option. Your satisfaction is guaranteed! We’ll spend a great day out on the rocks together.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund.Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

Currently, Mick resides in Seattle, WA managing Kaf Adventures and continuing to hold the vision of this ever evolving company. He works tirelessly to continue to provide world-class experiences that provide knowledge and a greater perspective of the great outdoors.
Mick’s true passion is education. He has found a unique passion for educating aspiring instructors and guides in the U.S. You will find him outside helping new leaders gain confidence in their ability to make decisions in complex environments.
When he is not in the field (where he spends over 100 days a year) you can find him creating electronic music and making people dance. Mick has a habit of making those around him smile, and you might just wonder when he sleeps!
