Experience routes within the Cottonwood, Maple, or Provo Canyons which will be customized according to the experience level of your group.

Select the half-day tour which is perfect for first-timers or those who have only a little previous experience - giving you a sampler of single pitch ice climbing. The adventure will take place in Little Cottonwood Canyon within the Wasatch range or in Provo Canyon south of Salt Lake City. The exact location depends on weather conditions and your group skill level.

Listen as the guide explains how to use the climbing equipment including ice axes and crampons and the belaying technique properly. Then, get kitted out with helmets and harnesses.

As you begin to climb, your guide will set up a top-rope belay for you and give you instructions on improving your technique. The instructor will adjust the rest of the session in accordance with your group's climbing ability and enthusiasm. Finally, conclude the tour with a return transfer back to Salt Lake City where you will be dropped off at the original meet up point.
