5 Best U.S. Destinations for Rock Climbers

Let others know

From Yosemite National Park to Leavenworth, these are the top places in America to go rock climbing, according to TripsToDiscover.

1.     Yosemite National Park, California

This climbing destination is world-renowned and known for the sustained crack climbs of Merced River Canyon. Multi-day aid climbs are also popular with truly adventurous types. Just keep in mind that since this is a protected park, some cliffs and falcon nest site areas are off-limits to minimize the impact of human activity.

2.     Red River Gorge, Slade, Kentucky

Slade is huge and has lots of climbing potential for climbers of all skill levels. “The Red,” as it’s affectionately called, has lots of routes in the 5.6 to 5.8 range. There are some great climbing guide companies based here that will take you out into the gorge safely and with all the gear and instruction you’ll need. Stay in a cabin in the woods to make an outdoorsy weekend out of it.

3.     Devil’s Lake State Park, Wisconsin

Wisconsin has some surprisingly awesome cliffs that you can travel to on a budget in just a weekend. One of the best parts about climbing here is taking a dip in Devil’s Lake down below to soothe your sore muscles after a hardcore day of climbing.

4.     Zion National Park, Utah

This national park in Utah is known for some of the best rappelling and climbing opportunities in the area and the landscapes are nothing short of breathtaking. Zion has 2,000-foot sandstone cliffs that have become famous for their long climbing routes. Since there aren’t too many top roping or sport roping climbing areas otherwise, this is a climbing destination best left for experienced climbers.

5.     Leavenworth, Washington

This is a great place to climb if you like to simply pull off the road and set up a top rope. Granite crags are abundant, and all levels of climbers can find something to challenge them here.
