For good reason, canyoneering in Utah has exploded in popularity in recent years. The canyon landscapes of the state are simply remarkable! The exploration involved when descending one of the thousands of canyon labyrinths (in Utah alone) is unparalleled. Both canyon travel and rappelling require knowledge and proficiency with technical rope systems and  other specific techniques to maintain safety during outings. Proper instruction and guidance are essential in fostering safe travel techniques for both clients and future trip leaders. We are here to teach you the skills to make your canyon outings as safe as possible. Whether you are new to canyon travel entirely, an avid climber looking to expand your skills, or a canyon regular looking to keep current on the latest techniques, we have canyoneering courses and trips for all ability levels. We offer them locally here along the Wasatch Front around Salt Lake City. Alternatively, for a more immersive experience, our multi-day trips and courses in the Red Rock Desert of southern Utah are custom tailored to show you the best of canyoneering.

BIG Waterfall Wasatch Canyoneering Adventure:

Are you looking for a way to cool off this summer close to Salt Lake City? How does rappelling down a 700' waterfall in Little Cottonwood Canyon sound? Canyon adventures are not limited to desert excursions. Trips down the Great White Icicle's unfrozen falls in summer are a fantastic way to enjoy the Wasatch! The area is also a great venue to practice skills for technical canyons further south. Experienced rappelling skills are required.

Small Waterfall Wasatch Canyoneering Adventure:

Another great way to cool off from the summer heat! In a more moderate adventure compared to the BIG Waterfall trip listed above, climb up to and rappel down a 150' waterfall, also in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The falls (Lisa Falls) make for a super fun way to cool off with little commitment as the approach, although pretty, is short. No experience is necessary as the trip is treated as an instructional outing.
