Alert! Suggest change

Moe’s Valley is in grave risk of being passed into the hands of developers. We absolutely need your help! Please submit your input to the BLM by December 21st. We have sample wording that needs to be used in order to get the attention of local authorities.

Description Suggest change

Nice bouldering area to the west of the St. George airport. It's now easier to get to, and you don't need high clearance anymore, so lots more people are coming out. Definitely recommended as a nice change of pace from St. George area climbing, or as a stop off (it's within 15 minutes from I-15).

The sandstone here is easily damaged when wet. Please allow at least 24-48 hours before climbing after any precipitation. If the ground is at all damp, please do not climb on any local sandstone. Consider nearby options on basalt, limestone, granite, or plastic instead.

The area is continually being developed, so any new problems would be appreciated.

Local color tends to have poor ethics when it comes to properly disposing their trash. Please help keep Moe's Valley clean by bringing in a garbage bag and carry out whatever cans, bottles or garbage you can find.

Getting There

It's kinda convoluted.

If you follow the directions in A Bouldering Guide to Utah or Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah & The Arizona Strip, Second Edition, you'll definitely get to the valley, but you'll also need 4WD and high clearance.

Due to suburban sprawl there's an easier way, and one that low-clearance 2WD can use:

* Travel on I-15 (north or south) and get off at Exit 6;hl=en&geocode=&q=saint+george,+utah&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=49.223579,59.853516&ie=UTF8&ll=37.082914,-113.582668&spn=0.046835,0.058451&z=14 (Bluff St.).

* Turn north on Bluff St.

* At the first light, turn left...

* ...then immediately left again onto Hilton Dr;hl=en&geocode=&q=saint+george,+utah&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=49.223579,59.853516&ie=UTF8&ll=37.086388,-113.585747&spn=0.006102,0.007306&t=h&z=17. You will pass a bunch of car dealerships in a minute.

* Continue on Hilton Dr. (which curves to the right and becomes Dixie Dr.) until 600 W street on the left.

* Turn left onto 600 W.

* Turn right onto Tonaquint Dr.

* Turn right on Curly Hollow Drive (after turning onto Tonaquint it is the third street on the right, and heads past Tonaquint Middle School;hl=en&geocode=&q=saint+george,+utah&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=49.223579,59.853516&ie=UTF8&ll=37.07313,-113.609297&spn=0.006103,0.007306&t=h&z=17). Shortly past the school the pavement ends.

* Head up the hill on the dirt road.

* Bear right at the fork.

You should see Moe's Valley ahead of you (power lines cross the entrance to the valley).

Park in either parking lot (there's usually vehicles in both). Like I said, kinda convoluted.

Mapquest makes things a little clearer for the paved roads, but they don't have anything for the dirt road.

NO CLIMBING WHEN WET

Please do not climb in Moe's when it has rained or snowed. The holds are fragile and will break if wet. It takes approximately 48 hours to completely dry.
