WASATCH ICE

Guided Ice Climbing Trips and Instructional Courses in Northern Utah

The Wasatch mountain provide some terrific ice climbing opportunities. Continuous flows of icy splendor are just a stone’s throw away, making access a simple and quick romp. It is no surprise that the ice community flourishes in Northern Utah; from single pitch top rope objectives (perfect for beginners) to multi-pitch whole-day adventures, the area is ripe for exploration. 

In many senses ice climbing can be thought of as a variation of rock climbing. This exhilarating sport allows you to try something new while extending your climbing season into the colder months. Although it may seem foreboding and challenging at first, with proper equipment, technique, and professional training, most folks progress quickly in their skills while having a blast in the process!
