To Provo Canyon, Nunns Park (Google Map), for Stairway to Heaven, Bridal Veil Falls, and other climbs:
Provo and points west: Drive north or south on Interstate 15 to Exit 272, 800 North St. Follow this thoroughfare (also called Utah SR 52) east through Orem, and turn northeast (Left) on US 189 into Provo Canyon. Look for the signed Nunns Park exit as the limestone walls start growing on your right and park in the lot on the South side of US Highway 189.
Drive West on US 189 through Provo Canyon until the walls start shrinking. Look for the signed Nunns Park exit, and turn south back under the highway to the large parking lot.
To the Great White Icicle: Meet at the UTA Park & Ride Lot (Google Map) at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Exit on 6200 South off of Interstate 215, and drive Southeast up a hill to join Wasatch Blvd. Continue South past the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, and up another hill and wrap east into Little Cottonwood Canyon. Just as the canyon walls start to rise, turn left at a junction marked by a flashing information sign, and park in a large lot with a bus stop.
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.
