INTRO TO ICE CLIMBING 

We are proud to offer custom guided ice trips to one of the top ice climbing destinations in the united states this 2019 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.
