Known for ice and mixed climbing, Santaquin Canyon has emerged as a rock climbing destination as well. Limestone cliffs and crags abound with numerous established bolted sport routes. During winter ice climbers will find a good mix of easy to difficult water ice routes.
This scenic canyon is located in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and borders the Mt. Nebo Wilderness Area to the south.
However, all necessary information can be obtained from Mountainworks, the local climbing shop.
