Guided Rock Climbing and Canyoneering Trips

Moab Desert Adventures has a wide range of climbing trips and canyoneering trips. Browse through our website and you will find that we have trips for all abilities, something for everyone to enjoy. A real desert adventure.

For Rock climbing,
Moab Desert Adventures is THE professional climbing guide service of Moab and we will lead you on a desert adventure that you will never forget! Our rock climbing guides are experienced, professional and friendly. Whether you are touching rock for the first time, or ready to challenge yourself on a spectacular desert tower, Moab Desert Adventures is the guide service that will make your dreams come true. We are the most respected climbing guide service in the area, and recommended exclusively by the local climbing shops and other outfitters. Our guides have been climbing and guiding in the Moab area longer than any other guide service.

If Rock Climbing seems a little too intense but the thrill of high places and a little ropework appeals, Moab Desert Adventures can also guide you through some beautiful landscapes when you join us for a canyoneering adventure. These trips are a perfect day out for the family, groups or by yourself. Our guided canyoneering trips are a plethora of experiences all wrapped up in a memorable half day to full day outing - beautiful scenery, rappelling, hidden towers, rock art, hiking, scrambling - what more could you want? Definitely bring the camera.
