Utah CLIMBING/ROAD-TRIPPING TRIP REPORTS


This page provides links to my trip reports in Utah, which so far have involved a brief climbing trip to Lone Peak Cirque, a week climbing in Zion, four days summiting desert towers near Moab, and a weekend in Indian Creek. I also have a non-climbing trip report for a 2-week photography/exploration road-trip through the amazing landscape and National Parks of Utah. Indian Creek is hands down the awesomest place for crack climbing I've been to, so I will be back for sure.
You can access the trip reports by clicking on the interactive map below, scrolling to the list below that, or using the sidebar to the left.
