Climbing & Bouldering

WORLD-CLASS CLIMBING IN THE HIGH COUNTRY 

Rock & Ice magazine named Boone one of the United States' top ten climbing towns stating the NC High Country being "some of the East Coasts best climbing."  

Climbing in the Boone area is an amazing way to be right in the middle of the area's most expansive views. On Grandfather Mountain's Rough Ridge, Ship Rock towers 4,000 feet above the piedmont and the scenery is nowhere wilder than on the crags of the Linville Gorge Wilderness. The climbs at all these sites are as different from one another as the diverse routes climbers find at the many area bouldering sites, many reached by easy, woodsy walks.

Whether you are after multi-pitch ascents of awe-inspiring cliffs, or easy access bouldering (climbing close to the ground, without ropes or harnesses) the Boone area has a range of topnotch climbing experiences.  

On cliff or crag, the High Country boasts a long list of classic East Coast climbs and Boone area professional outfitters have all the gear, guided trips, instruction, and information you will need to clip into high adventure in the High Country!
