A Guide to the Best Climbing In Moab

This is an offering we like to call a “collection of awesome”. These are itineraries linking together our favorite objectives in the way we’d choose to experience them with our friends (i.e. YOU)! All of our offerings are 100% customizable, and the sample itinerary below is no exception. By spending almost a week with us, your guide will get to know you and be better able to craft an experience that’s just right for you.

Day 1:
The first day will typically be spent at Wall St. a great venue with a wide variety of options. Here we can sort our the groups ability, teach any number of skills related to movement or systems, and get a feel for how the rest of the itinerary will flow.

Day 2:
The second day is often spent at Indian Creek. There is no where better in the world to hone your crack technique than Indian Creek. An indoctrination into featureless parallel sided cracks is a process often described as, well, difficult. That’s why you’re with us, right? We can take you through step by step the skills needed to make crack climbing comfortable and enjoyable.

Rest Day:
Even those of us who live for climbing understand the value of a rest day. There are numerous activities to check out in and around Moab: mountain biking, canyoning, Arches National Park, and much more. If you’re a warrior with limited vacation time we’re happy to run this program as four consecutive days.

Day 4:
This day varies. Sometimes we revisit Indian Creek or check out a new crag around Moab. Each group has a slightly different experience, it’s the whole point of having a guide who knows you and knows the area!

Day 5:
You’ve spent the whole week preparing for this day, the final objective. There are any number of towers to climb from the famed Castleton Tower to lesser known objectives like Parriot Mesa. This magnificent desert landscape has enchanted climbers for generations  and we hope you can join us for an amazing climbing experience!

Indian Creek With a Single Rack

A major segment of the climbing scene in Moab is Indian Creek. The Creek is a world destination for climbing parallel sided cracks. The title pretty much sums it up, but this video also offers a peek at our crew and the love we have for this special place.

Classic Rock Climbs of Moab

Castleton Tower 5.9

The most famous route on this iconic tower is Kor Ingalls. A slightly lesser known, but exceptionally popular moderate route is the North Chimney at a moderate grade of 5.9.

Perhaps the most classic route is the North Face. At solid 5.11- it’s not the choice for most inaugural trips up Castleton, but if you have the movement skill this is by far one of the best routes in Castle Valley.
