Moab, Utah has been described as the ultimate climbing trip destination and we at Moab Cliffs & Canyons definitely agree. The soft sandstone of the Moab desert is easily eroded by the elements to create rock faces, cracks and towers that present bountiful opportunities for rock climbers. Best of all, the coarse texture of sandstone provides excellent grip allowing climbers to ascend slopes of all kinds.
As specialists in canyoneering and rock climbing, we are committed to providing deeply enriching guided rock climbing tours for our clients. Our trips are a fantastic experience for kids, parents, beginners and veterans alike.
Rock Climbing In The Moab Area
We take the safety of our clients very seriously which is why all our guides are AMGA-certified professionals with extensive training and vast personal experience in climbing. They know how to select the best quality climbs to suit your needs and experience level, ensuring that you not only view the beauty of Moab’s cliffs but also get to climb them.
During each trip, we will teach you the rudimentary climbing techniques and safety practices so you can become a proficient climber. There’s no need to worry about the equipment as we’ll provide the technical climbing gear you’ll need including helmets, climbing shoes, harnesses, ropes, belaying and rappelling devices, among others.
As part of our philosophy on being responsible stewards of the desert, our guides will address subjects like the area’s geology, local history, flora and fauna to give you a better understanding and appreciation of the desert ecosystem.
Guided Rock Climbing Trip Options
We offer a variety of ½ Day or Full Day guided climbing tours based on the participants’ abilities. These include:
- Beginning and Intermediate Single-Pitch Climbing – Our Moab Cragging trips are perfect for 1st-time climbers and those with limited experience. You can choose between a ½ day trip (4-5 hours) or a full-day one (8 hours), both providing a feel for the local rock and a relaxed climbing atmosphere.
- Multi-Pitch Climbing. For this, you can opt between the ½ day trip to Looking Glass Rock with quality climbs and an expansive view or a full day trip to the San Rafael Swell for an easy to moderate climb between giant upturned slabs.
- Full Day Intermediate to Advanced Climbing. If you’re an intermediate or advanced climber looking for face-climbing opportunities, our guides will take you to some of Moab’s best climbs in an area that sits at around 8,000 ft. above the ground.
- Full Day Advanced Crack Climbing. If advanced crack-climbing is your thing, you can’t miss out on our full day (7-9 hours) or multi-day trips to Indian Creek- considered the best crack climbing area in the country. This is the place to perfect your climbing while learning and practicing various jamming techniques.
Regardless of your age or experience, our climbing tours are guaranteed to be fun. For more information, get in touch with Moab Cliffs & Canyons today.
