Moab Adventure Tour Guide – Heidi Stanke

Rock Climbing & Canyoneering Guide

Heidi grew up in Chicago, where she first discovered rock climbing in Devil’s Lake State Park in Wisconsin. It wasn’t until 2009, a decade later, that she began climbing at the Red River Gorge in eastern Kentucky. From that point on, she has committed herself to a lifestyle dedicated to the pursuit of world class rock climbing. She has lived and traveled all over the southeastern US, and has spent time in the Sierra Mountains of California. She started climbing in the Moab area in 2013 and has since fallen in love with the desert. Heidi first began working as a climbing guide in Tennessee in 2011, began guiding professionally in 2015, and joined the Moab Cliffs and Canyons team in 2016.
