Guided rock climbing is now available at North Bend State Park. This spring a professional mountain climber opened an adventure business in Ritchie County that offers people of all ages an opportunity to experience guided climbing. North Bend State Park offers the setting and John Starkweather leads expeditions on the rock walls rising above the North Fork of the Hughes River.
No experience is needed and all equipment is provided by North Bend Climbing Guides. A number of climbing and rappelling packages are available for families, groups, and campers including an introduction to climbing. Trips for experienced climbers are also available.
