    Spectacular sunset climb, unique experience at 270' up a tree.

    Spectacular sunset climb! Never have I done anything like it before. Wonderful experience for people of all ages. We had 20-somethings to 60-somethings in the group. The staff is very friendly, helpful, supportive, and, of course, safety conscious. Climbing 270 feet up sounds daunting, but you go at your own pace and everyone made the ascent comfortably.

    Fun times in Oregon Forest

    Our trainer was very thoughtful and helpful. She took her time to teach us. She offered helpful suggestions and advice. The owner was kind generous and friendly when we got lost finding the right area and stayed on the phone with us until he knew we were where we needed to be. They both went above and beyond when it came to adjusting on the fly due to my medical situation. We are definitely going back.

    One of a kind experience

    A breathtaking experience on a cold autumn day. I went climbing with my 10 year old daughter and had a blast. Our guide Tim was exceptional in providing guidance and advice on the equipment and helped us all the way through. My daughter went well over 150 ft before we decided to stop, still felt like we got our moneys worth of thrills. Would definitely recommend it for someone who is looking for an adventure, be mindful that it is quite strenuous and not easy for someone out of shape.

    Sore for a day, memories for a lifetime

    This was an amazing experience I 100% recommend. I was a little reticent to do this solo but the group I climbed with quickly become like family. The climb and hike does require some strength and stamina but you go at your own pace the whole time. Definitely consider paying extra for the sunset climb as the extra tree height and view are completely worth it. Shout out to Megan who was an amazing tree guide!
