Description

In the heart of the Cascades in the state of Washington, you will get to spend 2 days learning a number of important skills and techniques that crucial for safe and enjoyable rock climbing.

This course is separated into 2 parts. The first day will focus primarily on learning several important skills. Meanwhile, the second day will focus on putting those recently learned skills into practice on multi-pitch climbing routes.

Potential spots for the first day’s course include the Index Town Walls, the Snoqualmie pass, Exit 38 or a route in the North Cascades National Park. After establishing our camp, we will begin practicing. The skills learned during the first day include climbing equipment selection, safety check system, multi-pitch climbing communication, introduction to anchor building and much more.

For the multi-pitch climbing on the second day, participants will belay guides as they lead the route. Guides will then belay each participant from the top as the students remove protection while climbing. After participants have reached the belay, they will assist the guide with racking gear, managing the belay and setting up rope for the next pitch. From the top, you will get to enjoy some magnificent views. Afterwards, you can either rappel back down to or walk back to the base.

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

If you have ambitions on climbing peaks like Mount Shuksan and the Forbidden peak, among others, you have to learn how to do so properly. And on this 2 day course, our intention is help you learn and hone those skills. To participate, just send us a request.

We also offer a longer, more extensive 4 day version of this course as well.

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.
