Moe's Valley, UT is a hidden climbing paradise found in southern Utah. It's located just minutes outside of St. George, Utah. For a long time this world class bouldering area stayed relatively unknown except to climbing developers and local climbers. Over the years it has grown tremendously in popularity and now has a guide book describing where all the bouldering routes are and their difficulty level.

The bouldering in Moe's is on grainy brown/orange colored sandstone that if you are not used to it can eat your skin up pretty fast. This area is prefect for day trips, the weekend warrior, even car camping for weeks. There are many boulder problems from V0(beginner) to V14(Super human). There is no cover charge of any kind to stay there, really, as long as you keep it clean and pack out what you pack in. The local climbers every year have a bouldering competition and a trail building day to make sure there are clean and clear trails. Please stay on the trails as to not hurt any desert life.

Pack List

  • Climbing Shoes
  • Crash Pads
  • Water(lots of it)
  • Snacks(There aren't stores that close by)
  • Camping gear(If Camping)

  • Lots of extra skin :)

How to Get There

Amazing

Amazing. Took second to figure it out, the road you continue to go on says "DEAD END." But turns into a decent dirt road. The locals were really inviting and informative. Definitely coming back next time I come through.
