Amaz­ing Fall Climb­ing in Utah

Gripped - - FEATURE - Story and pho­tos by Tim Ban­field

Moab, Utah, is one of the most pop­u­lar fall road trip des­ti­na­tions for climbers through­out North Amer­ica. The Moab area of­fers thou­sands of routes, in­clud­ing the short and tall clas­sics at Wall Street. There is un­lim­ited climb­ing to choose from, but af­ter my re­cent trip, I’ve nar­rowed it down to a few spots you don’t want to miss. The climb­ing sea­son in Moab is best in the spring and fall if you’re look­ing for clear, sunny skies and nice temps. If it does rain, it’s of­ten not for long and there’s a se­lec­tion of ac­tiv­i­ties to do in Moab if it gets wet. Make Moab a des­ti­na­tion for your fall road trip this year and you won’t be dis­ap­pointed.
