Utah has long been known as a rock climber's paradise, but this spectacularly diverse state also plays host to some of the finest ice climbing in North America. Written by long-time Utah ice climber David Black, Ice Climbing Utah is the only guide available that covers all of Utah's major ice clmibing areas -- as well as many hidden, lesser known treasures. Logan Canyon; Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons; Provo Canyon; Santaquin Canyon; Diamond Fork; Maple Canyon; Joes Valley; all these and many more are included in this first-ever guide to the best ice in Utah. Whether you're seeking classic trade routes or modern, mixed desperates, it's all here. Easy-to-use overview maps and photos are complemented by detailed route descriptions that include information on length, approach time, and descents. Contributions by Greg Lowe and Doug Heinrich offer perspective on Utah ice climbing past and present, and an avalanche safety article by Mike Jenkins and Liz Hebertson completes the package to make Ice Climbing Utah an indispensable tool for your next Utah ice adventure.
