Overnight Wasatch Climbs - Utah Rock Climbing

Overnight Climbs

Some of our favorite Wasatch climbs are high up in our mountain cirques and require a long approach. Plan on a day's hike to reach a flower filled meadow or a high mountain lake where you will enjoy a quiet night under the stars.

Get up early the next day to climb, descend, break camp and hike back down to civilization.

Custom or private guiding means you have a guide dedicated to you or your group rather than being in a class or clinic that is open to other guests.

UMA's outstanding guides and instructors are available daily to lead climbs and help guests progress in any and all aspects of climbing.

Rock Climbing - Guiding & Instruction - Utah Mountain Adventures

Join Utah Mountain Adventures for guiding or instruction in Utah's Wasatch range, a world class climbing area with outstanding vertical landscapes of granite, quartzite, limestone and alpine peaks. Learn techniques and routes in Little Cottonwood, Big Cottonwood, Mt. Olympus , Bell's Canyon, etc. Our guides know the routes intimately and can help you excel while making your climb as memorable as the scenery.

Or build skills in a course, such as the Rock Climbing Clinic or Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing Course, Teton Prep, Canyoneering Course, or Learn to Lead. Safety and client satisfaction are paramount at Utah Mountain Adventures. We limit the size of our groups to ensure individual attention from our highly experienced guides.

UMA also specializes in corporate team-building and just-for-fun, group climbing activities. Participants learn trust by belaying and lowering one another under guides' supervision. Climbers overcome fear and push each other while scaling vertical walls and rappelling down. Venues in the Cottonwood Canyons are easily reached, can accommodate large groups, and offer climbing challenges from friendly to 5.13.
