Salt Lake 5-day Rock Climbing Course for Teenagers

Salt Lake 5-day Rock Climbing Course for Teenagers | undefined

Join a certified guide from Utah Mountain Adventures on this 5-day rock climbing course for teens in the stunning canyons of Salt Lake, Utah!



5 Days

Jun - Aug




Salt Lake is a great spot for teens to enjoy outdoor summer fun, and rock climbing is an excellent way for them to do it. Not only will they get a healthy dose of fresh air, they will also acquire strength and confidence. This is why we designed a special 5-day rock climbing program for teens. On this special course in Salt Lake, we take teens on an adventure packed experience designed both for their enjoyment and for their personal growth.

Every day we will start at 10 am. The meeting spot will be decided on by the guide on the previous night depending on weather and group conditions. Then, we will set off on an adventure packed fun day where teens will acquire a variety of rock climbing skills. We will explore different types of rock formations, including Quartzite, Granite, and Limestone. We will also work on techniques such as belaying and multi-pitch climbing, depending on group level. As teens become more familiar with their surrounding environment, and physical abilities, they will also build up on their sense of accomplishment and confidence. Meanwhile, they will also be having fun and interacting with other teens in a healthy environment.

This course is for teens aged 13-17. Previous climbing skills are not necessary. However, we can also organise more advanced groups for those that have tried climbing before. We will at all times be present to help and guide each teen to discover and develop their own potential. 

Does a rock climbing course out in nature sound like just the thing for your teen? Are you a teen with a thirst for fun and adventure? Then make sure to book a place on this 5-day climbing course for teens  in Salt Lake, Utah!

We also offer a 5-day climbing course for younger groups aged 9-12. Find more information here.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
