Guided Rock Climbing Tours

Our mission is to get people out on the rock with our climbing tours. The professional rock climbing guides at White Pine Touring, our guiding service, will give you an exhilarating and memorable climbing experience; whether you’re a first-timer, an advanced climber, or somewhere in between.

All of our rock climbing tours take place in the beautiful Uinta National Forest, just a 45-minute drive from Park City. Known for breath-taking vistas, more lakes than you can count and great quality rock for climbing, the Uintas are a short distance from Park City, but they feel like a world away. This is true wilderness country.

Permit Areas for Guided Rock Climbing

We’ve had guide permits at Cliff Lake and Wall Lake for years, both of which boast climbing above pristine alpine lakes and offer a variety of beginning and intermediate top-rope route options.

Recently we secured permits for Ruth Lake, Stone Garden and Hayden Peak, to offer an even greater variety of climbing routes for our customers. Ruth Lake, the original sport climb destination that put the Uintas on the map, boasts the largest array of intermediate and advanced level sport climbs, while Stone Garden offers one of the classic hard climbs in the Uintas.

And we are proud to be the only guide service with access to Iron Hayden, one of the main multi-pitch climbing venues at Hayden Peak.

Experience Our Rock Climbing Tours

Our Expert guides have been leading climbing tours in the Uinta Mountains for over 20 years. They have a deep love for the area and for rock climbing, and feel lucky to be able to share these things with their clients. Your guide will take care of all the logistics for you including transportation, equipment, setting up the climbing ropes and choosing the location that is best for you.

After a short hike to the crag, your guide will set up what is called a ‘top rope’ that will hold you up even if you let go of the wall with your hands and feet completely. Advanced climbers also have the option to work on sport and trad climbing techniques, under the careful guidance of our experienced Experts, all of whom are Wilderness First Responders, and also certified in First Aid and CPR. Some even have the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) SPI certification as well. With solid training and lots of experience, these guides keep you safe on the rock so you can focus on climbing.
