Rock-Climbing Outside Moab
I'm into rock climbing, so I couldn’t resist the endless sandstone in Utah. The spot pictured above is the world famous Big Bend Boulders, about 10 minutes out of Moab. The sandstone took a little getting used to, because it varies from near-granite hard to fall-apart-in-your-hand soft. The climbing community in Moab is friendly and enthusiastic. We met another climber—I think his name was Ben—who drew us a map of all the spots to check out. Some of the spots he sent us to turned out to be among the best views of the trip.
