Ice Climbing

Ice Climbing

the Winter Ascent

Every year when the terrain changes with the season, there’s a new adventure. A rushing waterfall in the summer provides a cool mist at the end of a hike, but in the winter when it freezes over—you climb it. Harness up for an alpine ice excursion in Montana’s Yellowstone Country. With over 200 pitches, Hyalite Canyon, just south of Bozeman, is one of the premier ice climbing destinations in the U.S. Both experts and beginners enjoy diverse, accessible climbing on reliable ice. Right outside of Bozeman you’ll find numerous renowned areas—like Hyalite Canyon—or, for the more adventurous, try the Beartooths and Crazy mountains.
