RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>


Hot in the summer, cold in the winter; Brown's canyon is a likely treasure-trove of untamed climbs. The rock is sedimentary but mostly solid. You will get occasional breakage, so watch out. Like most of Blanding's climbs, you are not likely to meet anyone who doesn't come with you.

Getting There 

Starting at Main and Center in Blanding, head south on Main Street just over 1.5 miles. You will already feel well out of town. Turn left on CR-219, also known as Guymon Ln. Go straight. After one mile, the road will cross Perkins Rd, also known as "Around the World." Keep following the road, although it begins to wander, for another mile until it ends in a gravel pit area. Park the car and hoof it two or three hundred yards due north. You'll see the canyon to the right (east).

This climb requires STAMINA!! Even after you beat the crux, you'll be tempted to give up unless you're in good shape. The very beginning is a bit tricky, but the crux comes nearly half way up. You'll find yourself on a ledge under an overhang with a big side-in crack. Work your way to the top of the crack and go straight up. The very top is also difficult, especially after you've worn yourself out. If you just can't make it straight up, the end is a bit easier to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
