Description

Take strides in your rock climbing career and indulge in a vital trad anchor seminar in the Seattle area at Index Town Walls! Learn from a knowledgeable local guide in the Cascade Mountains on a day-long program designed to help you break into trad climbing!

The Cascade Mountains in Washington State are devastatingly beautiful. The surrounding countryside from the ferries of Puget Sound to the foothills of near Ellensburg is evocative and mesmerizing. Nestled into this evergreen environment are immaculate slabs of rock just begging to be scaled, and your program is more than willing to accommodate. On a fact-filled day of trad climbing instruction at Index Town Walls, you will become a better climber with a readiness for adventure.

For alpinists with previous experience and who are interested in the exciting world of trad climbing, we will take you through the process of how to build anchors. Focusing on every aspect of construction, you will gain invaluable experience placing and creating anchors, with additional emphasis on climbing techniques such as route finding and safety procedures. With nuts, cams, trees, and boulders, you will add a wealth of tools to your climbing arsenal.

The anchor practices you will study include placing and removing protection, the principles of anchor building, the uses for knots and hitches, preparing top rope ascents, and so much more. After we meet in the morning, we will go over the essential information regarding trad climbing so you can dive right in to a superb program. You can expect to finish the day with both a higher awareness of climbing techniques and the ability to use them.

Index Town Walls is notoriously delightful to climb, so you couldn’t ask for a better place to practice the trad fundamentals. We will have a nice lunch break to admire the scenery during our informative day, thus providing an additional allure to your program. The charm of the Cascades combined with the thrill of rock climbing will provide an unforgettable experience that will stay with you on your successive ascents.

This area is my backyard, so stressing safety and comprehension allows us to have an absolute blast on a comfortable climb. This seminar is a truly unique program that provides the best environment to pursue your passion for rock climbing and mountaineering.

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.
