Gravity.  It is in part responsible for our existence on this planet and for the position of Planet Earth within the solar system.  Technically speaking, it is the force that creates resistance when traveling upwards.  At Snow Rock and Ice Adventures we make it our goal to defy gravity.

Rock climbing is a great way to become familiar with the most basic fundamentals of ropes, anchors, and belaying.  We provide customized courses, ranging from basic instruction to multi-pitch guided climbs.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced leader trying to hone your skills, a personal rock climbing journey could be just the trip for you.  We will tailor the trip to meet your current skills while also challenging your abilities in a safe environment.

The Spring through Fall offers some of the best times for rock climbing.  Some of the world’s most famous rock climbs are located in the United States, ranging from the granite walls at Yosemite National Park, California to the famous desert towers and incredible crack climbs of Indian Creek and Moab, Utah. The featured and textured sandstone of Red Rocks, Nevada is also an incredible place to climb and improve your skills.  Centrally located only 20 minutes from downtown Las Vegas, Red Rocks offers excellent climbing, from single pitch to long moderate multi-pitch routes.   The small but complex Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City, UT also offer a host of rock climbing opportunities and are the perfect venue for a quick weekend getaway with incredible access just 20 minutes from the airport.  

We also offer customized international rock trips ranging from Squamish, British Columbia to the Dolomites of Italy.  Ever dreamed of climbing above the ocean in a tropical climate?  We can travel to vast parts of the world, ranging from Kalymnos, Greece to Raily and Krabi, Thailand.   
 
If you want a half day trip or a two week adventure to a new destination, we are here to climb with you, safely assuring that you have fun and feel comfortable every foot of the way.  Let us and your imagination take you to new heights, defying gravity with each step.

I had been on guided climbs before, but never in circumstances that imposed such a tough job on the guides of balancing the need to keep the clients safe, getting us to the summit and back, and, at the same time, maintaining a positive disposition and friendly relations. Jonathon did an excellent job. Since that time I have engaged Jonathon’s services for both rock and alpine climbing trips. When I wanted to introduce my teenage daughter to some more challenges climbs I trusted him to organize and guide trips that would provide her with positive and safe experiences.

Having been a client of Jonathon I would highly recommend him as a guide. He is an extremely skilled climber and highly professional. At the same time he is very personable and will work with you to understand your goals and help plan a trip suited to meet those goals and have a great time in the process. I would hire Jonathon as a guide in the future without any hesitation.

Climbing with Jonathon is a great experience. While he understands that the climbers goal may be the summit, he will in no way compromise safety to reach a particular summit. Instead, he will have a plan B to ensure a fun and enjoyable trip. Jonathon is great to be around. As someone who you will spend the better part of a week with , he is fun to be around and has a great personality. Customer service is important to him and he will go above and beyond to satisfy customers. Lastly, is experience. I’ve climbed with Jonathon for over 5 years and I’m always amazed at his experience level. He is a true professional in his industry. He is always putting safety, service and customer focus at the forefront.

I recommend Jonathon in the highest regard and would never climb with a other guide. As usual, I’m looking forward to my next adventure with him. He has successfully guided me to the top of the Eiger, Matterhorn and dozens of other peaks in the Alps and Ecuador.
