The Yosemite mountains and Yosemite Valley form part of the Sierra Nevada mountains, a mountain-range stretching all the way through the central eastern part of California, offering breathtaking views and stunning formations. The granite rocks are perfect for climbing, both for beginners and for those looking for greater challenges. With stable, sunny summer weather and temperatures ranging from 20-30 degrees during the day, the promise of an enjoyable weekend in the outdoors is likely to be fulfilled.

This rock climbing course offers you the chance to explore the climbing routes in Southern Yosemite or Eastern Sierra Nevada, both famous for their cliffs and beautiful view. You guide will take you slightly off the paths trodden by so many other tourists, giving you a closer experience of the nature in the area. Over the course of the weekend, you will get plenty of opportunity to test your force against that of the mountain, obviously assisted by the experienced climbing guides. They will suit the routes to your level – whether you need beginner’s training or want to give more challenging multi-pitch techniques a go.


Day 1: Meet at the base camp between 4 and 6pm, where dinner will be served at 6pm. In the evening, your guide will ask you about your experience, skills, and goals for the trip and choose routes most appropriate for your interests and ability.

Day 2: Early breakfast is followed by travelling to the rock, where you will spend a full day climbing. The day starts with an introduction to basic techniques, etiquette and procedures - what follows depends on your skills and interests. Return to the camp is around 5pm, where dinner will be made before a restful night.

Day 3: After breakfast, you head back to the rock, where you spend the day climbing. There are plenty of routes for all levels, and the guides are happy to teach you new techniques, skills, or anything else that your heart may desire. The programme will end around 3pm, when you will make you way back to the camp.


Getting there

Fly to San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles or Fresno International Airport. Hire a car and drive from there.

Price includes

Price is per person and includes climbing guide, gear (if needed), tents, breakfast and dinner.

Is it for me?

If you enjoy climbing, this is definitely the trip for you. Although years of experience is not needed, it is not a climbing introduction for complete beginners, and a basic course or some level of confidence in the gym or outdoors will enhance yours and others’ safety, enjoyment and learning experience. You need to be fit enough to climb, prepared to camp outdoors, and ready for all weather conditions in the mountains. Tents means little privacy, but a closeness to nature that cannot be substituted for anything. Couples, friends, families with older children and single travellers will all have a good time.

  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

  • Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.

    Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.

    No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.
