Description 

The best single book for Maple Canyon Ice Climbs is Jason Stevens' Maple Canyon Ice Climbing, available at area specialty equipment shops (or perhaps from him directly if you contact him on this site).

Read it, especially his section on vehicular access issues.


Getting There 

All of the climbs in Maple Canyon absolutely require snow to provide moisture for the melt/freeze which forms these climbs, so snow-covered roads are pretty much a given. Plan to hike or skin up the road. It's a nice warm-up for the climbing, and will alleviate a lot of opportunities for a headache.

The upper dagger/pillar has been known to come crashing down mid-ascend. If you're not up for running out the last 20-30' with no gear, don't even get on it. There may be some pin placements adjacent to the top pillar, but don't count on it, unless you're a one-handed-placement thin-pin master... or were born with three functional arms. Every bit as steep as it appears, only longer. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
