MOAB ROCK CLIMBING & DESERT TOWERS

Rock Climbing Trips & Desert Tower Summit Climbs

Moab, Utah is undoubtably one of the coolest places to experience rock climbing. Splitter crack climbing, powerful sport climbing, and everything in-between await. The Moab area is home to world class climbing along with dozens of spectacular summits, and miles of single pitch trad and sport climbing that will both challenge you and leave you speechless. The climbing is incredible, exposed, and nothing short of amazing. Plus, you can't go wrong with the views!

Geologically speaking, Moab is a land full of activity. While the mighty Colorado River cut through the soft layers of sandstone, tectonic movement of the Moab Fault line fractured much of the sandstone we see today. The resulting tectonic movement pushed layers high into the sky creating the unique landscape we play on today This creates an incredible variety of climbing opportunities in Moab and the surrounding area.

Classic areas here include Wall Street and Potash Road, Kane Creek Canyon, River Road, Castle Valley, Long Canyon, and so many others. With so much varied climbing terrain that is easily accessible, it's not uncommon to follow the sun in the morning and the shade in the afternoon. Or better yet, climb a desert tower in the morning, have lunch in town, and crag the rest of the day!

 

Moab is a great destination venue for climbing and it's very easy to spend a few days here sampling the classics. We offer half day and full day climbing trips, and big tower climbs for wherever you're at in your climbing journey.
