Guided Alpine Rock Climbing in Utah's Wasatch and the Uinta Mountains

The Wasatch provides a bountiful year round playground for alpine ridge climbing. In summer, when ridges are bare of snow, easy rock climbing and scrambling skills are needed, while in winter snow and mixed climbs are the norm. The beauty of climbing in the alpine lays in covering ground quickly over terrain less technical terrain than that of traditional rock or ice climbing. Through a special use permit of the USFS, we are able to access areas throughout Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons as well as areas within the Lone Peak, Twin Peaks and Mt. Olympus Wilderness Areas. 

Private Alpine and Alpine Rock Guiding

Alpine climbing is all about tagging peaks high in the mountains. Anticipate consistent movement on big outings and some time spent in exposed positions! In summer most routes can be travelled with sticky rubber approach shoes while in winter mountain boots and crampons are needed (or sometimes skis). Join us for a technical romp in the hills!
