1/2 Day Beginning Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing Trip
Looking Glass Rock
This Entrada sandstone formation has a long and pleasant low-angle rib that allows the beginner climber a chance to climb way off the ground and enjoy expansive views in a secluded area just 20 miles south of Moab.
The climbing is no harder than 5.5 but with a good amount of airy exposure creating the perfect situation for a beginner to attain a summit without needing a lot of strength or previous climbing experience.
Once on top you are free to explore or lounge on the vast, flat summit while your guide prepares the breathtaking 135ft, completely free-hanging rappel through a crazy window of an arch! A nice and relaxed adventure with just the right amount of mental and physical challenge for the beginning or first-time climber.

Because a reservation guarantees space on a trip, we sometimes have to turn others away for those same dates. Thus, cancellations must be made at least two weeks prior to the trip dates in order to receive a full refund of the reservation deposit. Any cancellations made after the two-week cut off and up to 48 hours before the trip will forfeit the $20 per person deposit. To cover our costs, we must charge the full trip amount for any cancellations made less-than 48 hours before the trip.
We will refund your entire trip amount if we must make a cancellation due to adverse weather. Please be aware that weather cancellations are made only by our guides, based on how climbing and canyoneering conditions are affected.
