Description

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 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.

Promote and Practice - Leave no Trace.

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 (Bluff St.).
  • Turn north on Bluff St.
  • At the first light, turn left...
  • ...then immediately left again onto Hilton Dr. 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). 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.
