Trip Itinerary

Meet your guide in Oakhurst, CA at the designated meeting location. You’ll follow your guide in your vehicle to the climbing sites (all roads are accessible with a two-wheel drive vehicle, though an SUV style vehicle may be more comfortable on the dirt roads). All climbs are catered to your own abilities and interests. Tell your guide your goals and they will cater the day best achieve these! Some possible options are:

Spend a day pushing your limits on the granite ridges of the Willow Creek Walls. Whether you’re here for a fun morning or a full day, the Willow Creek area offers fun and challenging climbing for the entire spectrum of climbers.

For the more experienced climber, spend a full day cragging steeper walls at Hawk Dome or climb above the trees on one of Fresno Dome’s numerous multi-pitch routes. These climbs range from 200 to 600 feet and provide a challenge for any level of climber.

Trip Reviews

Deanna R, 2023

I’m so glad we went with SYMG. Fresno Dome was absolutely amazing, as it's an unheard gem that we had to ourselves. It offered us great routes both challenging and chill to choose from. Chris really took the time to get to know us and took into account everything we were looking for in a guided session. This included learning valuable and safe techniques that improved our climbing. He assessed what we already knew and expanded on it, all while giving us tons of hands-on training. He was amazing at figuring out how much to push us but we still felt very safe through it all + he was a great conversationalist who made us feel right at home at the crag - Chris truly made the entire trip an unforgettable experience!

Noah M, 2023

We did a full day guided tour as a work offsite and it was spectacular! Great, experienced guides that had us challenging ourselves and feeling safe. Would recommend

Ross T, 2019

Our guide Benton did a great job setting up a climbing experience that was appropriate for my daughter's first time climbing outdoors in a setting accessible enough for my wife and younger kids to watch.
