Dream of climbing in Wyoming?
Whatever your background, Wyoming Mountain Guides will customize a climbing trip that suits your sense of adventure. We guide a wide variety of vertical terrain - the Sherman granite of Vedauwoo, the limestone canyons and desert ice falls of the Bighorn Basin, the glacial cirques of Cloud Peak Wilderness - letting you choose from some of the best rock, ice, and alpine climbing in the west.
WY climb with us?
Our old state slogan says it all: “Like no place on earth.” Wyoming is full of geological wonders, pristine wilderness, warm communities, and a wealth of world class climbing. We can’t think of a better way to share what Wyoming has to offer than by climbing in a remote limestone canyon, learning about rare plants, listening to a bull elk bugle, and then sampling a stout or two with the locals.
Our mission is to offer guiding services as exceptional as the great state of Wyoming. We offer custom climbing trips on world class rock, ice, and alpine objectives, in addition to our youth and community programs. We are well-educated, well-trained professionals and pride ourselves on being as good of listeners as we are climbers. We’ll help keep you safe, improve your technique, and provide the support you need to climb your best.
What sets us apart is our emphasis on education and stewardship. For us, climbing is not just an adventure; it’s a great way to explore the natural environment and historical context of the places we climb. We also believe climbers have a responsibility to preserve and protect the wildlands of Wyoming. We teach the principles and best practices of “Beyond Clean Climbing”, “Beyond Leave No Trace”, and we hope you’ll join us in the fight to keep public lands in public hands.
Climbing courses, clinics, and custom outings
Want to take your family climbing for the first time? Push your skills to the next level? Summit that secluded Wyoming peak? Whatever your aspirations and budget, we will customize an adventure just for you.
Youth & community programs
A majority of people who grow up in small town Wyoming never get the chance to experience the spectacular climbing in their own backyard. Our goal is to change that and give more locals the chance to explore the vertical wonders of Wyoming.
Youth Climbing Camps
For Youth Ages 10-18
Every summer we offer educational climbing camps for youth ages 10-18 across Wyoming. Students will learn the fundamentals of climbing safety, movement and technique as they climb in the limestone canyons of the Bighorn Mountains and the Sherman granite monoliths of Vedauwoo.
Community Climbing Clinics
We offer low-cost instructional clinics to help locals to gain the technical skills they need to start climbing. Both rock and ice climbing clinics will be offered on a seasonal basis. Our hope is that these clinics will help make climbing in the area more accessible and more inclusive.
"Wyoming Mountain Guides provided my wife and I the objectively most valuable climbing experience we have ever had with their Trad Climbing Course. We learned a plethora of useful climbing techniques for finger cracks to off-width, how to diagnose the structural integrity of gear placements, how to build safe gear and bolted anchors, how to rappel with a guide belay devices, and, most importantly, we became one with the enlightenment of slotting the perfect, snug hand jam for the first time."
Professional and personable guides
"I took an Intro to Rock Climbing Course with my guide Zayne... Zayne is super nice and encouraging. He is also a great communicator which made me feel comfortable and confident when working with rope systems. He also answered all the 80 million questions I asked and gave me a bunch of demos of knots, ground anchors, etc. I definitely came away with applicable knowledge to the sport and I plan on using their services again to advance in my climbing."
I went through WMG for an intro to ice climbing course with a group of friends. We are rock climbers on a budget and Zach was willing to work with us to do one day instead of two at an excellent price. Our goals of learning technique, systems, and safety were well-achieved and our guides were super helpful talking us up the routes, and were great in recognizing the knowledge and skills we had from rock climbing and helping us build off that. Discounts are offered for return clients and overall it was a hell of a deal for a quality time.
