Enjoy a classic Lake Tahoe family adventure and go rock climbing on Donner Summit, just outside of Truckee, California!

The moderate climbing crags of Donner Summit provide the perfect place to enjoy rock climbing with a family of various abilities. If some members are seasoned climbers, we can tailor the day to improve skills and work towards getting out on your own. If your family is new to the sport, we take care of all the safety and provide a fun day of rock climbing together.

A day with Alpenglow Expeditions means climbers get educated on basic knots, learn how to belay from below and also receive instruction on movement and technique while climbing. The focus for the day stays on fun, safety and learning to rock climb in Lake Tahoe. Kids ages 5-12 are welcome to join with a participating or attending adult.


As a Tahoe guide company with countless expeditions to high-altitude peaks around the world over the last 15 years, we bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to our beloved “home mountain”. Our teaching and guiding philosophy has been honed from the flanks of the Himalayan giants to the technical peaks of Peru, and we are beyond excited to be able to bring our program to this fantastic mountain. In addition to our international expedition roots, we are accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), being one of the very few guide services in the region to hold such a high standard. Each of our guides is trained by the AMGA in the terrain in which they operate, and the program is supervised by internationally licensed IFMGA mountain guides. This high standard, along with our many years of experience, translates to a fantastic mountain adventure!

Alpenglow Expeditions operates under special use permit with the Tahoe, Eldorado, Inyo, Humboldt-Toiyable and Shasta-Trinity National Forests. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

A day of climbing in Lake Tahoe can be enjoyed by anyone. There are no fitness or technical requirements.
