Since 1985, Sawtooth Mountain Guides has been taking people rock and alpine climbing in the Sawtooths and other mountain ranges surrounding Stanley and Sun Valley, Idaho – the Lost Rivers, Pioneers, Boulders and the famed City or Rocks. From families, kids, and first-timers to the most hardened climber, Sawtooth Mountain Guides can lead the way to an amazing mountain adventure!

We also offer a number of Climbing Instructional Courses as well as custom trips combining rock climbing with other outdoor adventures such as rafting, hiking, and camping.
