As soon as a winter chill is in the air and rivers and streams start to freeze, an unusual breed of person appears: ice climbers. They are quite fanatical about the sport and constantly on the lookout for the first sign of frozen vertical water to climb. The Salt Lake City area and Wasatch Range make up a veritable ice climbing playground with some internationally renowned routes, including the famous Stairway to Heaven near Provo. The following routes are all classic, and all involve more than one pitch—they’re full-day adventures. Remember, always check with local climbing stores and with information hot lines for weather and avalanche conditions before climbing. This guide includes Scottish Gully, Great White Icicle, Stairway to Heaven, and Exum Utah Mountain Adventures.
