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.

A recent growth of new routes and rising popularity has made Ogden a contender for "climbing city of the year". With accessibility so close to the city, you can be up climbing routes after work and back home in time for a late dinner.

Easy access lends Ogden to be an great destination. Crags such as 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.
