Custom Private Rock
The Eastern Sierra is the undisputed, year-round rock climbing mecca of North America (and possibly the world).
A hugely diverse rock climbing playground. You can climb granite cracks in the morning and pull on volcanic pockets in the afternoon. The weather can’t be beat. There are more perfectly climbable days per year here than any other major climbing venue we know of. The region features crags and climbs at all elevations in the deepest valley in North America, the Owens Valley, and has a great variety of rock types. We probably don’t have to point out to you that Bishop is both a world class bouldering destination and that the High Sierra has some of the best alpine rock climbing on the planet. Sunny skies, perfect temps, and the best rock in the world – you’ll see why we love climbing here in our home range. Let Sierra Mountain Guides to show you around to get the most out of your trip to this incredible place!
But maybe you want to go check out exotic Morocco? Or go climb Red Rock multipitch sandstone adventure routes? Climb in the historic and picturesque Italian Dolomites or on the sparkling orange alpine granite high above the town of Chamonix, France on the massif of Mont Blanc. Custom guided rock climbing is all about going where you want, when you want, and with who you want.
Eastern Sierra Custom Pricing
The Eastern Sierra is our backyard. We live and work here year round, and there is no place we would rather be! Custom prices are per person per day, based upon the length of the day and the guest:guide ratio. The chart below makes it easy to estimate the base price of any custom program we might offer in the Sierra. This is the price for the guiding and all associated group gear, permit fees, and all other administrative costs. Base prices do not include: any of your travel or lodging costs, porters, packers, rental equipment, or other additional items. We will customize any program to your specifications and we are happy to give you a price quote that is inclusive of any additional services. We arrange this at no extra charge to you and we often have access to special deals not offered to the public, that we extend to you. Ask about our group rates too!
Half Day: 4 hours
Full Day: 4-10 hours
Big Day: 10 or more hours, requires pre-screening by our staff
Multiday: any day with a night out for the guide on either end
Outside of the Eastern Sierra
Custom prices outside of our home area are calculated the same way as our local prices and the guiding is based on the same rates. We add associated costs of: transportation and logistical elements, lifts, helicopters, snow cats, boats, small planes, porters/packers/jeeps, lodging and transportation, and any additional features or services as needed and desired. Some programs require that we go through a partner operator and we may then be subject to their fee structure and their policies. Full travel day or trip prep for the guide(s) is generally charged at $200 per guide/day and the guide is given a $50/day food stipend when away from home.
Costs of international programs can be difficult to estimate, but this is the general method we use. We love to travel and guide, and planning custom guided trips within a budget is our specialty. Over the years we have become very good at it. We are certain you will not find an adventure travel agency, outfitter, or guide service that can do a better job putting together a custom guided trip-of-a-lifetime. at such a low price to value ratio, for the types of experiences we offer.
