We just finished the Ephedra's grotto with Jerome as our guide and he was great! We even had a lady who was very scared of almost everything we were about to do almost to the point it was annoying. But he was so patient and understanding. He was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. The staff here is great... More

Our family of four took the half-day trip to Ephedra's Grotto with Dustin and Brett as our guides. While Moab is full of climbers and guides, Brett and Dustin are the guys you want in charge of the ropes when your kids lean backwards off a 100ft sheer rock face and are dangling above the canyon floor below. The trip... More

My husband and I booked an all day climbing adventure in Moab. We were fairly experienced climbers, although with different abilities and used to the rocks of the northeast. Our guide, Riley, was truly excellent and showed us the techniques applicable to climbing sandstone slabs. The climbs were well thought out and gave us both a challenging, but doable, variety....

My wife and I recently did a 1/2 day trip with Cliffs and Canyons. We did the Ephedra's Grotto/Morning Glory Arch rappels. It was beyond words. We had never rappelled before. Our guides were Dustin and Jerome. These guys were energetic, enthusiastic, informative and most importantly for me...hilarious!! Great sense of humor. Made trip so much more fun. They were... More

did the canyoneering trip with our guide, Heather. she was warm, enjoyable, and had immense expertise. Had complete faith in her ability to guide us up steep climbs, and rappel deep canyons. the trip was absolutely fantastic, and a great way to add safe excitement to your trip.

My boyfriend and I, both 25 yo, had tons of fun on this 3/4 day trip! Our guide, Evan, helped us choose the Little Sinbad Canyon adventure and we loved it! Evan was a fantastic guide; he was informative, provided lots of encouragement, taught us new skills, and made sure we were always having fun, but at the same time... More

Our Canyoneering experience was a great start to our vacation in Utah. Our guides, Riley and John, were very nice and were good with all the ages of our group. They were very patient with the scaredy-cat adults and were great with the kids. The rappels were scary enough for the experienced and first timers alike. The hike back was... More

Two of my sons, a granddaughter and husband helped me celebrate my upcoming 70th birthday with our first rappelling experience. Anticipating going over a 120 foot cliff into a canyon, Ephedra's Canyon, was pretty frightening for all of us. Our great guides, Dustin and Joe, alleviated our fears, showed us what to do, and did a terrific job. The reality... More

This May, my 25 yo son and I were guided on a canyoneering trip by Mat Pesce. We had a wonderful time. Mat is very professional and accomplished in climbing technique, teaching and safety. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of the region added to the fun. We hiked/rappelled and climbed the Hypatia canyon and would go again if/when... More

We had a great morning, canyoneering with the whole family . We were taken care of by guides Riley and John, they were great. I recommend this for families as its fun and tiring, good hikes and a little scary.
