The Mouth of the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone, home to some of the longest sport multipitch climbs in the country

Explore the incredible multipitch sport climbing in Cody, Wyoming


We offer custom guided rock climbing trips in Cody, Wyoming on some of the best moderate multipitch sport climbing objectives in the US.  We guide some of the country’s longest multipitch sport climbing routes in at the Mouth of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River, home to several routes ranging from 6 to 22 pitches.  These multipitch sport climbing routes feature fun and mostly moderate slab climbing on grades ranging from 5.8-5.11 in an incredible, desert-alpine setting overlooking the northern Bighorn Basin.  If you like climbing long moderates and you’re looking for an awesome experience climbing in a wild and scenic venue, a custom sport climbing trip to Cody is a must-do.


Why climb in Cody with us:


Our rock climbing guides are experienced professionals, talented climbers, and well-trained teachers.  They are also humble, personable, and overall great humans to be around in the mountains.  Our guides are adept at providing safe, supportive, and inclusive climbing experiences for people of all backgrounds and ability levels.  Many of our rock climbing guides live and climb in the Cody throughout the summer, which is a major advantage because they know the areas they guide extremely well.  Being based in the area also minimizes travel for our guides, which makes our service more affordable than our competitors and reduces our carbon footprint.


Favorite routes in the Mouth of the Clark’s Fork:


Having some fun at the top of Colter’s Rib (5.10a, 12 pitches)

  • Colter’s Rib (5.10a, 12 pitches, 1400′) – Colter’s Rib is a great introduction to the style of multipitch sport climbing found at the Mouth – we highly recommend it for your first day of climbing in the area.  It is also an excellent objective in itself with great rock, mostly moderate climbing, and incredible positioning.  The rock quality is outstanding, there is only one 5.10 move on the route (most of the climbing is 5.8 or below), and the route follows an aesthetic arching rib of limestone with significant exposure on either side.  Many of the pitches can be linked, making this route an excellent choice if you want to cover a lot of ground but don’t have all day to climb the longer classics at the Mouth described below.


M11 (5.11, 22 pitches) is an all-time classic and one of the longest sport climbs in the country

  • M11 (5.11, 22 pitches, 1850′) – M11 is the longest multipitch sport climb in the Mouth and currently one of the longest sport climbs established in the US.  The route features thousands of feet of fun and mostly moderate slab climbing on clean, well-featured limestone in an incredible desert-alpine setting.  Ambitious and well-fit climbers may be able to complete the route in the day but it’s also feasible to bivy on route or climb the first half of the route as a day objective.  Don’t let the grade or length of the route intimidate you too much however – most of the climbing is 5.9 or below and this is an incredibly unique and rewarding objective regardless of how many pitches you want to climb!


Topping out the stellar fourteenth pitch of Forever (5.10 AO, 21 pitches)

  • Forever (5.10 A0, 21 pitches, 2500′) – Forever is an incredibly fun and lengthy climb that ascends one of the tallest features at the Mouth.  Most of the pitches are easier than neighboring M11, but Forever is much longer than M11 (comparable in height to Half Dome!) and the nature of the climbing feels more varied and adventurous in nature.  Of all the Mouth routes, Forever feels the most like the long bolted limestone alpine routes found in the Italian and Austrian Alps.  And the top of the climb is not to be missed, as the last four pitches put you on top of a freestanding tower that has one of the best summit views in the area!  Without a doubt, Forever is one of our favorite guiding routes in the state (and one of the longest guided rock routes in the country for that matter).
