Moab Utah Adventure Tours Rock Climbing Tour 1:2 Day Trip Multi Pitch Climbing Up Looking Glass Rock

1/2 Day Climbing Trip – Looking Glass Rock

This Entrada sandstone dome that is Looking Glass 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.
