Hump Day Hustle
Throw some weight on your back & log conditioning miles for those upcoming summit attempts. Join our out-&-back charge up & over Misery Ridge and down the Mesa Verde Trail to the River Trail. As it's a school night, we'll have a hard start time of 5:30 and a hard turnaround time of 6:30. It's 3.2 miles round trip with a total of 1425 feet of gain, not bad for a workday workout! Don't forget your Smith Rock parking permit! Now's the time to get in shape for the serious hillclimbing!

Upcoming Meetups

What we're about

Our mission is to promote outings, enhance training and experience, and expand a sense of community among Central Oregon mountaineering enthusiasts.

Our outings may include:

· Mountain climbing – from scrambling on easier peaks to technical ascents on more difficult routes

· Ski mountaineering and glacier travel

· Sport or trad climbing at the Bend Rock Gym or outside on rock

· Multi-day backpacking and winter camping

No need to hire a guide to find adventure in the mountains. Join us to gain new skills and get experience. Regardless of whether you've been climbing for years or if you are just starting out, the Cascades Mountaineers welcomes your participation. You’re likely to attain new peaks.

We've been based in Bend since 1996. For more information, see our website at or email us at
