Rock Climbing

Hang with us. Rock climbing is one of the favorite sports in the Columbia Gorge. There are many local crags and routes located just minutes away from downtown Hood River. With Smith Rocks, possibly the greatest rock climbing in America and maybe even the world, only a couple hours away. From careful beginners to crags that challenge the pros, the climbing opportunities are diverse and plentiful here in the Gorge.
