Most of Providence Canyon contains crumbly, chossy rock that only Mother Nature could love. In winter, however, there are ice climbs that form regularly near the old limestone quarry that is about 2.5 miles up the canyon.

Getting There 

Near the city of Providence. Find 100 E. in Providence and follow it south until it curves left (east) and turns into Providence Canyon Road. Continue until you reach the mouth of the canyon.

In 2011 flooding washed out much of the road base near the bottom 1.2 miles of the canyon. Providence City and the National Forrest Service are still working on returning the road to its former condition. As such, there are posted restrictions as to the weight of vehicles that are allowed up the canyon. The signs say no wheeled vehicles over 800 lbs. Use caution if you plan on driving up the road, especially in wet conditions or in the spring. Conditions in winter allow for 4WD vehicles to enter the canyon. Otherwise, access is by ATV, snowmobile, skis, or hiking.

70' of gradual ice leads to a 35' vertical step with more gradual ice to follow. This climb is spring fed and does not depend on snowmelt. However, temperatures need to be consistently below freezing otherwise the spring water will melt it out.Rappel from trees or downclimb the chimney to the climber's right and then downclimb to the base. You can bail before the vertical section with a sketchy traverse to the climber's right and rappel from a small tree....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
