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 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.
Intro courses and custom climbing trips
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.
