Ice Climbing Pipe Dream
Utah › Provo Canyon
Added by Andy Earl
- Easy access ice climbing right inside the mouth of Provo Canyon
- WI 3-4 depending on thickness
- Portions of Pipe Dream are visible from the road
With a couple weeks of cold temps this pipe fed ice flow comes in nicely. It is WI 3-4 depending on thickness. Grab a small grill, some friends and drinks and get in a few ice laps. Most of the routes can be set up for top roping.
Park on the north side of the road roughly a mile from the mouth of Provo Canyon. There will be a small grey building off the side of the road leading you to a bridge to cross the river. If you hit Canyon View Park (The first park in the canyon) you have gone too far. Walk north west toward the bridge and cross the river. Continue down the Provo River Trail and look up to the right for the pipe up in the cliffs encased in cement.
Walk off the trail to the right toward the cliffs and you will see Pipe Dream come into view. Portions can be seen from the road if you are having trouble locating it.
