Description

We offer half day, full day, and overnight ice climbing trips in the high desert canyons of the western Bighorns.

Half-Day Ice Trips

Our half day trips are great if you want to try ice climbing for the first time or if you have a particular objective in mind.  All of our permitted areas are suitable for half day trips and are easily accessible from Highways 16, 14, and 14A. 

Full Day Ice Trips

A full day gives you more flexibility to climb multiple objectives, learn about more specialized topics, and take more time to enjoy the winter landscape. We recommend selecting two proximate objectives for your full day trip to get a better sense of the variability in terrain inherent to ice climbing – no two ice flows are the same. 

Overnight Ice Trips

Our overnight ice trips give you more mileage on ice and teach you essential skillsets for winter mountaineering.  In addition to the topics covered on our shorter ice climbing trips, our overnight trips will cover essential skillsets for winter camping, such as snow shelter construction, cooking and self-care in the cold.
