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 southern Utah are custom tailored to show you the best of canyoneering.

Big Waterfall Wasatch Canyoneering Adventure:

Looking to get wet while experiencing some high adventure? How does rappelling down a 700' waterfall in Little Cottonwood Canyon sound? Trips down the Big Waterfall, AKA the Great White Icicle in winter, are a fantastic way to enjoy the summer heat in the Wasatch! This is a physically challenging outing with a steep hike up to the top of the falls that is only suitable for fit and ambitious types who can cope with heights! The reward of the hike is tremendous view of the canyon followed by the unique experience of descending through a long and steep granite lined watercourse. Great fun!
