This is a selective guidebook describing the very best of Moab’s rock climbing areas. All the main rock climbing areas around Moab are described including Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Castleton Valley (River Road). This unique red rock desert environment is a world class area for traditional rock climbing on sandstone rock. It is famous for its magnificent towers and spires, soaring parallel cracks coupled with red orange vertical walls and slabs – all of which is captured in this guidebook.
The guidebook is split into 9 areas which are Hwy 191 north (Tusher Canyon), 313 Road (Canyonlands National Park), Little Valley, Arches National Park, Potash Road, River Road (Castleton Valley), Kane Creek, La Sal Mountains, and Hwy 191 South.
This guidebook is written by long-time Moab local Karl Kelley, and is therefore full of excellent local information. This includes detailed location maps and access information for each main area. All the routes are shown on colour photo topos along with a route description.
