Description 

Located just south-east of the city of Spanish Fork, Spanish Fork Canyon is home to a smattering of minor ice climbs and widely-scattered rock climbs on sandstone and conglomerate.

Most of the ice routes in this canyon are short. The ice here tends to come and go throughout the season.

Getting There 

US Highway 6 follows Spanish Fork Canyon south over Soldier Summit (7,477 ft./2,279m) and then back down through Price Canyon (65 miles from SF to Price). This is a scenic drive full of wildlife with the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest on the north side of the canyon and the Manti-La Sal National Forest on the South side.

Drive south on I-15, take the Price/Manti exit 258, and follow US-6 into Spanish Fork Canyon.

From Price, follow US-6 north, through Price Canyon, over Soldier Summit and into Spanish Fork Canyon.

Featured Route For Spanish Fork Canyon
The Pricecicle, looking beautiful still.

The Pricecicle WI4  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Spanish Fork Canyon / Hwy 6...
Also known as The Dirtcicle this drip is found adjacent to Highway 6, if there were a pullout there one could belay from the passenger seat. It's usually one of the first climbs in Utah to show up, and is a good indicator of probable ice being found in Joe's Valley.Not the best place to climb but this is often in before anything else....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
