Upper Canopy Exploration
Canopy exploration is for the more adventurous folks looking to push themselves to new heights. These climbs will bring you to the tops of some of the tallest trees around, whether it's a tree on your property or one of our host trees. See how the world looks when staring down at the tops of trees and feel the tree sway as the wind blows in your face.
Upper canopy explorations can look pretty different depending on whether you want to climb a huge oak tree and swing amongst the branches or prefer to ascend a fir tree and see how high you can get. Call us and we'll work with your vision and figure out the best tree for you.
We set up the ropes and gear. You will learn how the gear and knots work, and how to adjust and set your back up safety tie-ins.
Contact us for price quotes. Upper canopy explorations can vary dramatically depending of location and number of climbers.
1-5 climbers at a time, all minors need parent or guardian accompaniment and signature
Single Rope Technique (SRT) Canopy Climb
Prerequisite: No Climbing Experience needed, but you must pass a low climbing test before climbing the full heights.
The Single Rope climbing technique is faster and more efficient when climbing taller trees and relies on mechanical devices sometimes combined with knots. During this three hour adventure we will utilize the SRT technique to climb 90 feet up into the top of a beautiful Douglas Fir tree named Shua. You will learn the basics of how this system works, our safety protocol, and then be climbing in the treetops before you know it.
If you are afraid of heights you probably will not enjoy this climb, please consider trying a Group Climb event instead.
Minimum two participants, with a maximum of four
This group climb is currently only offered in the forest location, mentioned on the Group Climbs page.
minimum age — 13
Old Growth Climbs
Prerequisite: Basic Climbing Course or Upper Canopy Climb, or Pass Climbing Assessment Test
Climbing Old Growth is the height of the tree climbing experience. The wind, feeling the tree sway and looking down on all those tiny 150 foot trees, is like no other experience on Earth. Though an experience everyone should have on their bucket list, you must be prepared and committed as we plan and charge far ahead for our tri-annual old growth climbs. Climbing 200 feet into the forest canopy takes a bit of skill and endurance so we require you to have taken one of our previous climbing courses before participating.
These climbs are announced throughout the spring/summer and are filled by advance registration.
Contact us to be included on our Old Growth contact list.
No minors allowed, adults 18 and over only
