Climbing in Central Oregon with Chockstone Climbing Guides

Join NextStop TV’s Jon Olson as he tackles Smith Rock State Park, the birthplace of modern sport climbing in America and one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon. He’s under the watchful eye of Gabe Coler with Chockstone Climbing Guides.

Smith Rock is just 40 minutes from Bend off Highway 97. It’s home to amazing scenery, hiking trails that range from easy to advanced, mountain bike trails, equestrian trails and much more. It’s a must-see when visiting Central Oregon.

Chockstone Guides are committed professionals. Each brings a wealth of diverse experience to our team. Our lead Smith Rock guide staff and instructors are American Mountain Guide Association certified or trained. Chockstone Climbing Guides strive for the best formal training available combined with diverse personal rock climbing experience. We are all local to the region and enjoy sharing our knowledge and our appreciation through many years of climbing together and guiding in Central Oregon.
