Climb Big Ice in Cody

Steller Ice Climbing in Cody, Wyoming

    We are proud to offer custom guided ice trips to one of the top ice climbing destinations in the united states this winter season. The beautiful South Fork Valley outside of Cody, Wyoming hosts the highest concentration of ice in the lower 48 states. From single pitch climbs close to the road, to committing multi-pitch routes, there is something here for all skill levels. Typically over 150 pitches of ice form in the valley providing some of the hardest routes in the U.S. and some of the easiest. We will be offering accommodations through the beautiful Double Diamond X dude ranch which is situated perfectly in the valley only minutes from the nearest ice flows.

Come climb with us for a day or for a week, and spend some rest days at Yellowstone National Park or experiencing the world class museums in nearby Cody, Wyoming. Contact us today to speak with our AMGA certified guides about creating an unforgettable experience that will take your ice climbing to new heights.
