About Moab Cliffs & Canyons – Our Philosophy 2019-08-22T15:01:35+00:00

More than 20,000 thrilled adventure tour clients since 1999!

As Moab’s oldest climbing and canyoneering guide service, we’ve earned the reputation of being the area’s Vertical Specialists by safely guiding our clients through some of the most rugged and interesting desert terrain imaginable.

With our unrivaled collection of unique and challenging adventures our professional guides are committed to providing a deeply rewarding & enriching desert experience for our guests, each and every day!

We pride ourselves in being specialists in our area of expertise (rock climbing and canyoneering) we don’t offer any other types of trips! Our rock climbing and canyoneering pursuits are year round, working with international travel and adventure companies, film and photo productions.

We are committed to the life-long pursuit of the adventurous experience that rock climbing and canyoneering has to offer and the power it has to connect us to nature.

As Vertical Specialists, we do not take you and your family’s safety lightly… building a long term, trusting relationship with our guests is at the core of our business.  We hire and train only professional guides with a broad depth of personal experience in the vertical world.

As with all professions, you can’t teach experience and we firmly believe that when your safety is involved it is imperative that your guides have both extensive training and personal experience.

With Moab Cliffs & Canyons, you can relax and enjoy the adventure, knowing that you have experienced, safety conscious and highly skilled guides that you can confidently put your trust in.


Our Philosophy

We love what we do, not just because the activity of it is fun, but also because we are renewed and inspired by the places we go. Our trips visit many pristine and fragile wilderness environments that have recently seen a surge in visitation, threatening their wilderness qualities. The statement that we are “loving the desert to death” is becoming all too true.

But, we don’t believe  that means we’re supposed to bar the entry. Experiencing this land enables us to relate to it; relating to this land illuminates its meaning and value to our lives individually and collectively.

As a commercial enterprise, we believe that means focusing on more than just a thrill. We see every trip as an opportunity to facilitate a new relationship that ultimately makes us all feel enriched for having spent time here. Thus, if you travel with us, you’ll get a dose of our passion for the rich natural history and geology of this area.

Our goal is to set a standard in the outfitting industry that encourages stewardship of the land by promoting a deeper appreciation through information and an exchange of ideas.
