Help needed - climbing and places to stay in Moab 1-Sep-2014 At 11:29:30 AM peteclimbs
Hi 'stoners - I'm looking for some advice from those of you who have climbed in and around Moab. We've got a trip planned to the US in October, starting in Yosemite on October 15 then driving through to Boulder CO via Moab over about 10 days. I've climbed in Colorado before but not the other spots.

The idea is to spend 5 days or so in the valley and then 3 or 4 in Moab. I know this won't be anywhere near long enough but we're hoping to get an intro to both areas. Doubtless we'll be back for a longer trip.

I lead up to 20 (on a good day) on trad. Up to mid 20s sport. Been trading a bit over 12 months. My partner leads up to 16 or so on Trad. We both enjoy the challenge of crack climbing but, like many peeps, our enthusiasm isn't really matched by our ability :)

I'm reasonably happy that we'll find plenty of climbing in our pay grade to keep us entertained in Yosemite (and maybe Tuolumne if it's not too cold) but I'm a bit more concerned about Moab. From looking on Mountain Project it seems that there are some lower grade climbs but not heaps.

So my questions are:
- Given our abilities, is Moab a good choice and, if so, are there any particular recommendations in terms of climbs?
- For the time we have, do you think the balance of Yosemite vs Moab is about right?
- I know the second half of October is getting late enough in the year that weather might start to play a factor. Will Moab be freezing?
- Finally, does anyone have suggestions for places to stay in or around Moab/Indian Creek? We won't be camping as the logistics for such a short trip seemed too hard.

Thanks in advance.
