Climbing in Indian Creek

Details

Added by Seth Langbauer

The Creek draws climbers from around the country each year. Splitter cracks split the sandstone cliffs and open campgrounds turn into party circles at night. What draws so many people to Moab, is the endless cragging. Thousands of climbs right next to each other offer a perfect place to test your self or maybe learn. It's a place for climbers.

Come November most climbers are missing rock season. It's too cold. There's snow on the ground. There are lots of reasons why you can't climb in my native state, Montana, come November. So when some friends want to head to Moab to go climb in the colder months, I'm in.

Indian Creek is a extremely popular climbing destination. It has some of the best crack climbing around. It's a place to test existing skills and push the ones you're learning.

Indian Creek is more than just climbing. Being in the desert is special. It brings a different person. On top of great climbing you'll meet the best characters, and enjoy one of the most scenic landscapes.
