When some people look at an ice waterfall on the sheer face of a 1,000-foot cliff, all they see is adventure. With the help of 12 Finger Outdoor Adventure, those people can develop into masters of gravity-defying activities like ice and canyoneering, rock climbing, and mountaineering. Classes teach practical skills, helping adventurers learn to evaluate conditions on a slope, create ice anchors, or rappel down mountainsides. Safety-oriented lessons, meanwhile, factor in the risk of avalanches and provide a foundation in wilderness medicine in case of injury or illness. Once students have built a thorough background, guides can take them on customized experiences to put their ice-climbing or canyoneering skills to the test in Utah's majestic surroundings.
