Washington Trad Route Climbing
Washington Trad Route Climbing

Come and enjoy a 2 day rock climbing course that will focus on traditional routes in the beautiful Cascades in the state of Washington with a certified mountain guide.


Cascade Range

2 Days

May - Sep




* Learn how to properly rock climb on traditional routes on this 2 day course.

* Enjoy the stunning natural landscape of the Cascades in the state of Washington.

* Improve your skills so you can climb more challenging peaks in the future.


Full of wonderful climbing experiences, the Cascades in Washington are also a wonderful place to learn about rock climbing as well. And on this 2 day course, we will focus on learning and practicing how to climb on traditional routes (or trad routes for short) that follow cracks.

Beginning in a park and ride in Seattle, we will carpool to the climbing area. Once there, we will begin the course that will help you learn the necessary skills for safe and fun traditional route rock climbing. The course starts with an introduction to the equipment used for trad routes. That equipment includes ropes, protection, anchor materials and climbing shoes. You will learn how to properly use the rope and care for your equipment before we venture to the crag. We will then finish off the day with movement instruction, while climbing different cracks in the area. Afterwards, you can camp with the instructors if you wish.

On the second day of the course, the focus will be on practicing climbing movement while placing protection. Throughout the day, you will have plenty of opportunity to top-rope several traditional routes. As a result of this practice, I am confident you will become confident when it comes to trad routes. At the end of the day, we will review what you have learned, as well as provide you with future climbing possibilities.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition and have prior rock climbing experience.

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.
