Summer in the Wasatch and beyond...
Steep, perfect granite in the Alps.
Salt Lake City has all of the hip urban amenities and easy access to climbing on quartzite, granite and limestone in the canyons and above in the Wasatch alpine. Early summer is a good time to practice both rock and snow climbing, especially for those preparing for more sustained alpine and expedition objectives later in the season.
SLC is also an affordable and accessible international airport, only 30 minutes up canyon to ‘the Greatest Snow on Earth.’
