Rock Climbing Trips

We like to keep the groups small, generally under 8 people to offer better support to each individual climber. We can arrange to meet you at the climbing area or we will leave from the Sulphur Creek Outfitters store with our 12 passenger bus to get you and the gear to and from the rock climbing area. In some cases we will use 4-wheel drive vehicles. Because of the intense planning and resource requirement, we do not offer refunds but rain-outs can be rescheduled. Contact Sulphur Creek Outfitters for more information: 501-691-0138.
