Point Dume is as known for its epic crag as it is for being a popular filming location. With its 100-foot cliff right by the ocean, this Malibu Beach is celebrated for being one of the best rock climbing spots in California! Scaling to the top of the rock featuring crimps and sharp edges will be a lot easier with some ocean spray in the air—and if you get too hot, just jump into the Pacific and cool down. With crags ranging from the 5.6 to 5.10, you’re bound to find your dream route, and if you’re lucky, whales and dolphins might make an appearance. Get the show on the road on Malibu beach!

  • Refreshing ocean breeze and a panoramic view of the Pacific

Had a great day of climbing with Roger and Millena at Point Dume. Milena answered a bunch of questions prior to my booking and made me feel comfortable making the reservation. Roger is a good teacher and offered many tips on becoming a better climber. Looking forward to climbing again with them.

Roger is a great coach, he and his team are very professional and friendly. They are not only patient but also helped me feel confident all the way to the top. They are excellent with kids too. I notice that safety was a priority and the equipments were new. It was a great experience in an amazing place. Highly recommend 🙂

We did the half day climbing.

Roger and Milena were wonderfull guides! My boyfriend climbed before, I never did and we were both so satisfied! It already started with the mailcontact. Milena took the time to awnser all my questions. The area where we climbed was stunningly beautiful. I felt so confident because of their perfect guiding and we did 5 beautiful climbes also with nice views. We had the best morning! I would do this over and over again with these lovely and professional people!

  • If you can climb a ladder, you’re good to go. Being in good shape is always a plus but far from necessary. Rock climbing is all about using good movement technique rather than muscling up a cliff using brute strength. To ensure you have a fun day of rock climbing in Malibu, your guide will choose routes that best suit your skill and fitness level.

  • Malibu has plenty of options for beginner climbers. Whether you’ve never climbed before or are transitioning from the gym to outdoor climbing, your guide will customize the day to suit your skill level and objectives. With a guide by your side, you’ll learn something new, stay safe on the rocks, and most importantly, have fun!

    For intermediate to advanced climbers, Malibu has loads of routes to spend the day on. Your guide will discuss your objectives and customize the day to your goals. Let your guide plan the day so you can focus on developing your skills while climbing the classic routes or best hidden gems the area has to offer.

  • All technical climbing equipment will be provided by your guiding service. However, if you have your own gear, feel free to bring it. You’ll need:

      • Helmet
      • Harness with a locking carabiner, belay device, and chalk bag
      • Rock shoes (included in the price, but we recommend bringing your own if you have them)

    Here’s a list of the equipment we suggest you bring:

      • Small day pack to carry your personal gear, snacks, and water
      • Water bottle
      • Food you can eat on-the-go
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, etc.)
      • Sunglasses
      • Camera — optional

    Ropes and climbing hardware will be provided by your guide. Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

      • For this group adventure, the usual client-to-guide ratio is 4:1.

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors between 8 and 18 may be permitted to join the group, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian. If your group has climbers under the age of 8, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.
  • To get to Malibu, most people fly into Los Angeles International Airport. From there, you have a one-hour drive ahead of you to Malibu—you can rent a car or take a shuttle service.

    Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place to meet, whether that’s at the guide shop or a predetermined location. The guide will choose the appropriate crag dependent on conditions and the ability of the group.
