For more info, please choose from the following courses offered by Utah Mountain Adventures:
Learn the use of ice tools and crampons and climb on Utah’s beautiful frozen waterfalls. No previous climbing experience is necessary.
Learn how to maximize efficiency and avoid the painful forearm "pump" while scaling many pitches of WI 4-5 in an easily-accessible, world-class, natural ice theater.
Practice the emerging art of mixed ice and rock climbing with experienced UMA guides. Learn the use of ice tools and crampons on dry rock intermixed with frozen icicles. Some mixed climbs include both mediums, while other "dry-tooling" lines are composed entirely of rock.
Our 2-day course gets you plenty of mileage on fun, challenging pitches and helps you become a solid, safe water-ice climber.
Climber on "Stairway to Heaven"

Thank you for the great ice-climbing, and wonderful guiding by Andy Polloczek last week. My friend (Rico) and I had a lot of fun climbing, and we are really grateful of Mr. Polloczek's expertise. Even though Rico has ice-climbed in the past, he conveyed to me that he learned much more from Andy's instructions. It was my first time climbing on ice, and I think I am definitely addicted to this sport now. My other friends have expressed interest in ice-climbing as well (even a co-worker), and I will refer them to you and your company.

Mike was absolutely top-notch -- experienced, knowledgeable and personal. Great instruction and company for the day. A big thanks to Mike and UMA.
