Full Day Intermediate to Advanced Rock Climbing Trip - Moab’s Best Climbs
In the more than two decades that we’ve been climbing around Moab, we have sniffed out the very best climbs at a handful of the lesser known crags. These climbs see very few climbers and range in difficulty from intermediate to advanced climbing.
A wonderful steep-walled gorge with lush greenery and waterfalls, our spectacular intermediate to advanced climbing area sits above Moab at around 8,000ft providing a respite from the warmer summer temperatures occurring in the valley below. The climbs here are mostly bolted sport-climbs with a more sustained difficulty than occurs in other areas around Moab. Arguably one of the finest and most beautiful crags in Southern Utah, climbing here is for experienced climbers who prefer face-climbing over cracks.

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 weeksprior 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.
