Moab Basic Rock Climbing Course

The desert calls — school has never been this good

Tie in with Moun­tain Mad­ness guides and expe­ri­ence all desert sand­stone has to offer. The Moab area offers one of the friend­liest climb­ing crags in the coun­try, Wall Street. You can lit­er­al­ly belay from the bumper of the car! The cliff offers climb after climb of vary­ing grades (5.5 to 5.12) and styles. Ven­ture up par­al­lel crack climbs, low angle slabs, and steep face climbs — the choice is yours. 

The Ice Cream Par­lor is anoth­er great venue for sin­gle pitch instruc­tion with climbs from 5.6 to 5.11. After review­ing the fun­da­men­tals, you will be set for a mul­ti-pitch adven­ture suit­ed to your skills and expe­ri­ence. An excel­lent first mul­ti-pitch route can be found on Look­ing Glass Rock. Three pitch­es of 5.5 slab and face climb­ing lead to the sum­mit of the for­ma­tion. The descent involves a long free hang­ing rap­pel past a spec­tac­u­lar nat­ur­al arch! Whichev­er way the wind blows, we can cus­tom tai­lor your adven­ture to meet your needs

Add a third day and learn lead climb­ing fun­da­men­tals to take you one step clos­er to climb­ing one your own, with­out a guide — or add a fourth day and climb a desert tower!
