Ice Climbing 

Provo Canyon has the highest concentration of ice in the Salt Lake and Utah county area. There are numerous lines on both sides of the canyon. However, most of the thickest routes are on the south side of the canyon, where it gets less sunlight. The two most popular areas in the canyon are Bridal Veil Falls and Stairway to Heaven. Both have a rich variety of climbs. This is where many of us learn how great the world of ice is. As the sport of ice climbing has grown in popularity, the canyons' routes have gotten steadily more crowded because of their easy access. Often times on a Saturday as you drive up the canyon you can see a dozen or more climbers all over the ice. But there's usually enough to go around. Great place for climbers of any skill level.

Getting There 

Heading North or South on I-15, take the 8th North exit in Orem and head East towards the Mountains. This road takes you straight into the canyon on Hwy 189. From Park City, head south on Hwy 40 to Heber City, and then west on Hwy 189 into the canyon. Bridal Veil and Stairway to Heaven can be accessed by parking in Nunn's Park.

Rock Climbing Photo: The route is much longer than this photo makes it ...

Creatures of the Night M7  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Provo Canyon Ice
In your face right off the ground. From a small seam/pocket, move into a shallow diagonal joint/fault and then up on big edges. Crux through the last few moves to the dagger. Rest. Fire it off. Rap from a wrapped chokestone at the top (bring tat). The only time Jackson and I were able to work on it was after work on weekdays so we never actually saw the route in daylight....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

A climber was injured on a route near bridal veil falls. The details are found here: ksl.com/index.php?nid=148&sid=...

Looks like the lead climber's father posted what happened. There is also a video on ktvx.com's website if you search for bridal veil it will list it. It's an interview with the recovering climber.


Here's one about a McKinley climber/skier who feel 3100 feet and lived without broken bones if I remember right, it also details a hiker who died from hiking glacier point in yosemite I believe:

Hey all you ice/mix climbing people, hows about we start reporting conditions. I noticed this feature on some of the other states home page. I do not know how it works that is why I am throwing it out there, when I am in town I will report conditions. Good or bad idea?

I should add that the picture is an old one, I realized someone might think this is what I saw when I was up there Wednesday. P
