Enjoy the Best of Ice Climbing in Wyoming
We offer custom ice climbing trips for small groups of ice climbers who want to explore the best of waterfall ice and mixed climbing in Wyoming. The Bighorn Basin in northwest Wyoming is home to one of the largest concentrations of waterfall ice climbing in the country. From the alpine slot canyons of South Fork of the Shoshone River, to the more easily accessible crags of the North Fork and the high desert canyons of Bighorn Mountains, we are fortunate to guide a wide variety of world class ice climbing terrain. These custom ice climbing trips are demanding physically and technically, requiring a high level of physical fitness and a background in technical ice climbing. Trips range from light and fast day missions to three-day overnight outings, depending on the objective and conditions. If you’re looking for a one of a kind ice climbing experience in some of the most beautiful venues in the world, this is the trip for you!
