$26 for a Two-Hour Canoeing and Climbing Adventure for Two (a $52 Value)
Pairs convene at 6 p.m. to surmount the 24-foot rock-climbing wall. After following one of three routes up the craggy face to reach the top, an auto-belaying system lowers climbers back to the ground. Adventure seekers then head to adjacent docks to board a canoe and traverse as much as a mile of the river's length in either direction—and potentially encounter wildlife such as beavers, minks, or great horned owls. Pairs can spend any amount of time performing either activity, equipped with all necessary gear such as harnesses, life jackets, and paddles.

CLAS Ropes Course
Benjamin Allen believes outdoor pursuits can positively influence those in need. This belief has led him all over the continent, building a ropes course for an orphanage in Mexico and setting up two courses for troubled youth at Provo Canyon School, a bit closer to home. Wanting to share his knowledge of nature with the public, he set up a course, CLAS Ropes Course, near Utah Lake nearly 20 years ago. Benjamin and his crew have since erected more than 50 ropes courses around the country, continuing to inspect ropes and train others how to run them.
CLAS Ropes Course continues to grow each year, creating obstacles such as a giant swing that releases passengers 40 feet in the air, a 400-foot zipline that whizzes through forest canopy, and a "leap of faith," where adventure seekers jump from a treetop platform to a trapeze. A log balance beam hung 30 feet above the ground and a 24-foot-tall rock-climbing tower test agility and endurance, and a fleet of 20 canoes lets paddlers navigate a mile and a half of river. Many of these structures play host to team-building activities focused on developing a group's creativity and tolerance for hearing one another sing. Staff members tailor their instruction to families, dating groups, or athletic teams. They often apply their approach to athletes, such as a professional golfer who traveled all the way from Texas hoping to conquer her fear of not qualifying for tournaments. She defeated the log balance beam, departed victorious, and qualified during her next tryout two weeks later.
