Indian Creek is located next to Canyonlands National Park about a 1 hour drive south of Moab. Due to the distances involved in getting there for most people we recommend a minimum of 3 days here. It is not uncommon to make a day trip outside of Indian creek to climb on the face climbs of the crags around Moab to rest your hands (especially if you’re new to splitter cracks).

Learn Technique and Progress

If you’ve never climbed before or would consider yourself a beginner let us suggest a better venue to get started. Indian Creek is amazing, but the technique required to climb here is very specific and few climbs exist below 5.10. That said, if you are looking to take your climbing to the next level Indian Creek is the place to hone one very specific skill that will serve you well.

Crack Clinic Option

We offer a 3-day crack climbing clinic in Indian Creek. This clinic allows you to learn in a group setting and enjoy the social benefits of climbing. We’ll work on all sizes of cracks during the clinic and meet each participant at their level. One of many great aspects of Indian Creek is the variety of climbing that can usually be found within any section of a wall!

You might say it’s the center of the crack climbing universe and the first stop for many on their lifelong journey of mastering crack climbing.
