All trips have an important educational component to promote a deeper appreciation for our natural landscape. We are Moab’s oldest and most experienced climbing and canyoneering guide service. Half, full, and multi-day trips. Visit our website for more information on all our rock climbing and canyoneering adventures. Check us out on Facebook to see more photos of our adventures!

I went with my wife and daughter today on the Ephedra's Grotto hike. Our guides, Joe and Sarah, were fantastic! There are two rappels on this hike, each about 100'. We had never done any rappelling, but the guides give you confidence and tell you everything you need to know. The rest of the hike is picturesque down through a... More

My boyfriend and I went on a canyoneering/repelling adventure with Chris as our guide. Since we went early in the season, it was just the two of us and it was loads of fun! The equipment was reliable and our guide was even more so. The whole trip was very charming and fulfilling and we plan to do it again... More

We meet at Cliffs and Canyons at 7:15 a.m. for 2 repeals and about a 3-mile hike. The repeals were 120 & 100 ft. It was our first time and we enjoyed the canyoneering and hiking aspect. Cliffs and Canyons scheduled a group which was too large and diverse to fully enjoy our experience. We had to wait for long... More

Brett S, Owner at Moab Cliffs and Canyons, responded to this review

I am very sorry that you did not fully enjoy your canyoneering experience with us. On the more introductory tours we’ve found most folks enjoy being paired with other families and travelers. Yet adapting to the pace of others can be challenging for some people. Private trips often require an additional fee but they are ALWAYS available. Going that route... More

I joined a friend on a whim a few years ago to do Sinbad Canyon and was blown away by the trip itself as well as the guide's ability to make sure we all felt safe any by doing so, allow us to push ourselves outside our comfort zones. This year I knew I'd be in Moab so I immediately... More

My husband, myself and our two teenagers (13& 15) had a great time on this tour. Chris and Heather are not only great guides (responsible and experienced) but Chris took time to really educate us about the history of the area from the geology, to the settlements to the artifacts he's found. The scenery is beautiful and the canyoneering was... More

I went on a multi-day canyoneering trip (North Wash), a single-day canyoneering (Granary), and a tower climb (Ancient Art) with Moab Cliffs and Canyons and enjoyed all of them. North Wash is definitely worthwhile if you have the time. Our guide Joe S. was terrific - made us feel completely safe; he was very patient and knowledgeable on all aspects... More

My wife, son (8yrs) and I had an amazing climb. Our guide was incredibly nice and very informative. I would recommend Cliffs and Canyons to anyone, regardless of climbing ability.

It was just my two girlfriends and I, which was perfect. Only one of us had a good bit of experience rappelling, so my other friend and I were a little nervous for this all day excursion. We were worried for nothing though. I'm not saying the first rappel wasn't really hard for me, it was, but Evan walked me... More
