Description

Ogden is a city with a rather rich history of climbing and a large variety of stone. A majority of the rock you'll find here is quartzite, however you'll come across a bit of everything from limestone to conglomerate. With ascents dating back over thirty years, there is no surprise that names such as George and Greg Lowe have had their hands in some of the most classic routes in the area.
9th Street, School Room, and many other areas make it hard to find excuses.

Ogden includes several great areas with tons of routes. You'll be sure to come across a little something for everyone. Whether its alpine or sport, traditional or bouldering, Ogden has it all. So check out the hard limestone, mulit-pitch trad routes, ice climbing and bouldering, either way, you can't miss.

Getting There

From the South, Get on I-15 and head north past Salt Lake, after about 38 miles and follow signs for Ogden. See Individual Crags for more in-depth directions. Essentially, get on I-15, head to Utah, look for Ogden.
