Meet Our Guides

The Guides at Moab Desert Adventures all arrived in the desert following their passion for the area, its environment and especially its unique rock formations. They have all spent years climbing and exploring in the desert and learning how to safely enjoy its vertical wonders. Many of the Moab Desert Adventures climbing guides have pioneered new rock climbs in and around Moab. Our guides have been climbing and guiding in the Moab area longer than any other guide services. At Moab Desert Adventures, we pride ourselves on choosing guides that are professional, friendly and experienced. All our guides receive yearly training and have a wealth of climbing experience and their enthusiasm and passion for their sport will be evident as they share their skills, knowledge and favorite places with you.
