Check it out here.

Big Bend Bouldering Area (V0 – V5)
Big Bend has something for everyone, no matter your skill level or age. Located just 9-miles outside of Moab, Big Bend is a convenient place to hone your skills. It can be a great place to practice before doing traditional routes.

Wall Street Area (5.6 – 5.12b)
There are over 120 routes on Wall Street, mostly sport and mixed-sport climbs and under 100-feet. (We do suggest bring some trad gear, since sometimes bolts can be missing.) There are also a descent amount of crack routes. A wide range of ratings makes Wall Street very popular, so expect lots of company. If you only have time to climb one area near Moab, this is a great choice.

Fisher Towers (5.7 – 5.11b A3+)
Probably the most iconic, and the most difficult place to climb near Moab is at Fisher Towers. These massive sandstone monoliths provide breathtaking views for miles in every direction. All routes are trad routes, and several require aid climbing. If you’re up for a challenge, Fisher Towers will give you one. But it will be worth it.
