Moab Desert Adventures is a professional, confidence inspiring guide service. Everything was professionally handled and we knew we were in good hands with our guide, Matt. We started the morning at Ice Cream Parlor checking our skills on sandstone, which we didn't have any previous experience on. Our guide suggested a harder tower climb for the afternoon than we had...

My daughter (7) and I spent an afternoon beginning climbing at Wall Street with Marie. We had such a great time we wound up coming home and buying gear with plans to go back and take another lesson in a couple weeks! Highly recommended

Our family of five spent two days with MDA -- one day canyoneering and one day climbing. We were super impressed with their guides and very grateful for their flexibility in handling our ages (7-47). We have worked with a good number of guides over the years, and we found Nate and his crew to be top notch.
