The Wasatch is our home, and with the amount of quality rock climbing only minutes from our door, and 30 minutes from the airport and downtown SLC, you see why. There are two major Canyons “Big” and “Little” Cottonwood canyons, both full of world-class Rock Climbing.

WHAT WE OFFER
Big Cottonwood Canyon
Big Cottonwood Canyon is mostly quartzite and mainly sport climbing. There are great places for groups and individuals just getting introduced to climbing: good top-roping and places to hang out and watch. Big is also home to ultra classic, moderate, multi-pitch routes like the Outside Corner and Stewart's Ridge. If you want to try some difficult sport climbing... the angulated and crimpy quartzite provides plenty of that as well.
Little Cottonwood Canyon
Little Cottonwood Canyon is a beautiful granite, which lends to amazing crack climbing. We are lucky to have some great areas to learn crack climbing while linking up to some classics like School Room and Pentapitch. Another quality of LCC climbing is its granite slab climbing. Try climbing test pieces like The Dorsal fin and S-direct on the Thumb or maybe something more moderate like Zesty on Lizard headwall... A lifetime of chicken heads, cracks, slabs, and crystals can be found in "Little"!
