Smith Rock is the birthplace of sport climbing, thus it is very fitting that the American Alpine Club Craggin’ Classic is held there each year.

September 4-6th is the 4th Annual Smith Rock Craggin’ Classic and the line up of events promises a fun weekend of climbing, food, beer, and entertainment. Pro-climbers Beth Rodden and Jonathan Siegrist are headlining the event, teaching clinics and just generally being awesome.

The weekend kicks off with the Black Diamond Happy Hour at Redpoint Climber’s Supply where you’ll find prizes, a slideshow, and of course, beer. Wake up to a hot breakfast the next morning before heading out to climb or take a clinic.

The Craggin’ Classic is a great event for families, and new and experienced climbers alike. The clinic topics range from Begginning Rock Climbing to Climber Self Rescue to Light & Fast Alpinism and more! There’s literally something for everyone!

Saturday night is the big event hosted at the Terrebonne Depot. There you’ll find games, a vendor village, food, beer and a raffle chalk full of prizes. Stop by our booth, where we’ll be blowing out NW Alpine apparel at 50% off!

The  main event of the night is back-to-back Sufferfest 1 AND 2!


Stick around Sunday morning to lend a hand with the stewardship project. Last year we helped rebuild a washed out section of trail in the park, and it was awesome!

Hope to see you there!
