Two or Three day sport climbing clinic for all levels





Unique and rounded cobbles adorn these rocks walls. Come join us for two or three days of fun, learning and camaraderie while being challenged in one of Utah’s most iconic sport climbing venues! $600 for two days or $885 for three days.

New to the game? If you haven’t climbed outside before, Maple Canyon allows for an excellent introduction with a vast array of moderate 5th class climbs on up.


A Seasoned Sender? You’ve been sport climbing for some time: indoors and out. Perhaps you’re looking to push to the next level, gain more confidence, work on being an excellent lead belay partner, be more competent in your skills.


IRIS guides are EXCELLENT educators; skilled at communicating and coaching, great at taking a big concept and breaking it into digestible steps, and dedicated to facilitating an educational environment where participants can absorb and apply the information.


The folks you’ll climb with will become fast friends. Three days allows solid development of technique, community and partnership building, and learning a vast array of different topics in the sport climbing realm. Topics covered include movement; top-rope climbing; climbing knots & hitches; anchoring and cleaning; leading, falling and catching, and the mental game of lead climbing.
