Hi! I will be in Salt Lake City in mid- January. I would like to know what the weather will be like and if there are places to go cragging that time of year? and if so, where?

Thanks!

Tif

Cold and snowy. On a warm sunny day with no wind, you can probably find something in American Fork Canyon. Big Cottonwood Canyon may be climbable, but a major crap shoot. Good chance of thigh deep snow on the way to the cliff though.

It really depends on your tolerance for cold, and willingness to stay out of avalanche zones.

If it's warm enough, Ibex or Joe's Valley (if you're looking for bouldering only) may be worthwhile. About 2-1/2 to 3 hrs from SLC. Other areas to the south are possibilities as well - the St. George area. About a 5hr drive.

In short, expect to go to one of the gyms if you want to climb then.
