Destination to thousands of climbers a year Moab is viewed as the hub for desert climbing in Utah. Varried climbing locations coupled with weather and altitude give Moab year round climbing potential.
With days becoming longer and mountain snowpack melting Moab’s desert landscape comes back to life. Mild temperatures make way for endless climbing at any of Moab’s climbing areas. If towers are your goal be sure to check local weather for high wind and afternoon storm advisories.
Higher temperatures and fierce desert sun send climbers running for shade during the summer months. Plan for early morning and evening climbing on hot days and be on the lookout for north facing routs for mid day climbs. Be sure to bring at least one gallon of water per person if you will be away from your camp for any extended time.
After three months of chasing shade climbers receive a much needed break from the heat come September. Climb any of Moab’s local climbing areas throughout the fall. Early on climb up high and at shady crags then when temperatures start cooling off head to Indian Creek for world class crack climbing.
Frigid nights and cold winter days make climbing around Moab a solitary experience in the winter months. But don’t let the lack of crowds fool you. Sunny days, though cold, can still give way to fantastic climbing on the south facing sand stone cliffs.
