The Wasatch Mountains are a wonderful playground for climbers. We have some great ice climbing in the winter, snow climbs on local peaks in the spring and early summer and lots of rock climbing. The club hosts a weekly rock climb at local crags on Thursdays. We do a number of out of town trips each year to destinations such as the City of Rocks in Idaho, the Tetons, Indian Creek in Southern Utah, and the San Rafael Swell area. Climbs are listed in the Rambler and on this web site. We also have a climber’s email list that you can join to get additional climbing information.

The main activity for the climbers is the Thursday evening climbs. These climbs are held at various places in the Wasatch to give the climbers a variety of rock, difficulty and scenery. Climbers of all ability levels are welcome, from novices to hard core. If you are a novice don’t feel intimidated! We are an easy going, fun group and we will help you develop the skills necessary to enjoy climbing in this fantastic area.

Workshops are occasionally offered at low or no cost and have included in the past: Learn to climb, Learn to lead climb, Rappelling for canyoneering, Knots for climbers and canyoneers, Self-rescue for climbers and canyoneers, Snow climbing and self-arrest and Glacier travel and crevasse rescue.
