Climbing – Rappelling

Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has the only man made, indoor and outdoor, climbing and rappelling wall in the Zion area. The walls rise over 40 feet high and provide a unique experience for guests of all ages and abilities. Climbers that have no experience and climbers that are very experienced will all enjoy our diverse climbing walls. These walls are attached to an indoor/outdoor recreation barn that is home to East Zion Adventures-Zion Ponderosa’s recreation concessionaire. East Zion Adventures provides a great staff that is committed to teaching the basics of climbing.

Rappelling Lessons: (ages 10+) 250 lb weight limit. Participants are taught basic rappelling skills, safety, and technique. Each participant has the opportunity to take 2 rappels off of the 45 foot high climbing wall. This is available during regular rec hours 9-6. Please see the Recreation Desk to schedule. This activity is for group sizes of 1-10 people. View recreation pricing here.

* Please note that we do not provide rental climbing equipment or climbing shoes.

Zion Canyon National Park is located in the heart of Southern Utah ‘s Color Country and is Utah ‘s most popular national park. Zion National Park is home to breathtaking scenery and some of the most beautiful slot canyons in the world. Zion ‘s hiking trails and slot canyons are world famous, due to its mix of cool, clear streams, abundant vegetation, and sheer sandstone walls.

We do not guide rappelling or rock climbing within the park, however there are slot canyons on property located adjacent to, but outside of the Park that we do use for canyoneering adventures. Rock rappelling & rock climbing allow visitors to the Park to go places and see scenery that will be a once in a lifetime experience.
