Rockclimbing & Mountaineering
Some of the best alpine granite in the country can be found in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area north of Sun Valley. With a short hike you can access areas such the Elephant’s Perch and Finger of Fate. By late July most of the technical peaks in the Sawtooths can be done as pure rock climbs including Mt. Heyburn and Warbonnet. Also, there are some world-class cragging destinations in Southern Idaho a short drive from the Sun Valley area including City of Rocks and Castle Rock State Park.
Team up with local outfitters listed below to round out your Sun Valley vacation with a rock climbing/mountaineering adventure. Guides can lead you to some of the amazing climbing areas surrounding Sun Valley, or offer a day of instruction for any ability level.
