Great for beginners and adventurers!

Looking Glass Rock is an amazing formation out in the desert south of Moab. It offers a 3 pitch climb to its summit followed by an exciting, free hanging rappel to the ground! This trip is an excellent opportunity to get an introduction to multipitch climbing and to start learning those skills with a qualified guide!

Have no interest in learning about multipitch skills? That’s ok! This is an excellent adventure for individuals or large groups who want to tag a local Moab summit at a mellow difficulty. Have young kids? Often times kids as young as 8 can be successful but it’s best to call us first to discuss.

What’s Included

• All necessary technical equipment (climbing shoes, harness, helmet, etc.)
• Guide with excellent technical experience and knowledge
• All necessary permits and fees

What to Bring

• Water – FRCC highly recommends bringing 2 quarts (2-3 Liters) of water per person.
• Food – (Snacks / Lunch) Along with the water, keeping your body fueled throughout your trip will let you focus on climbing and not your stomach. Food a simple as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to high tech energy bars will keep you going throughout your trip.
 Small Backpack – A small backpack will allow you to carry your food, water, and other items you will need for the day. A backpack versus a handbag will let you freely use your hands while moving around the climbing areas.
 Hiking Shoes –  Most of the climbing areas require a slight hike from the parking area to reach your climbs. FRCC suggests a pair of sturdy shoes to safely get you to the climbs. You can call our office or ask your guide if your footwear will be appropriate for your climbing destination.
 Sunscreen – The sun can be intense at all of our climbing locations. FRCC recommends bringing sunscreen to prevent sunburns and other potential sun related issues.
• Sunglasses [optional] – Sunglasses will help protect your eyes from the sun throughout the day.
• Camera [optional] – Pictures will help you remember your trip. If you have a camera, bring it along and snap away.
