WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“First of all, I’ll just say off the bat that crack camp was without a doubt one of the top few funnest weekends of my adult life. Between the level of instruction you get, the volume of climbing you get in, the guide: student ratio, the friends/future climbing partners you make, and having the camping and other logistics taken care of for you, it’s easily worth every penny.

I’ve hired guides for full-day instructional courses before (intro to trad, and self rescue) but Crack Camp gave me by far the fullest days I’ve ever gotten in with a guide. Some of the guides woke up before dawn every day to set up topropes, so even with us getting to the walls shortly after sunrise, there’d already be enough routes ready for everyone in the group to immediately get started climbing. There was essentially never any idle time unless you needed to take a rest, so you’re really able to get out of it however much you put into the experience.

Mary and her instructors were also super flexible about tailoring the curriculum to our needs. Experience levels ranged from basically never having crack climbed to being a 5.10 leader, and everyone got to focus on what they wanted to. I got to practice leading around my limit and taking my first whips on gear, and they were super patient with me throughout the whole process. They also checked in with each of us at the end of every day to make sure we were achieving our goals and working on the things that we were most interested in. By the end of the long weekend, most of us could barely walk (in a good way!).

Overall, def one of the funniest climbing weekends I’ve ever had, and 10/10 would do it again.”

“Crack camp was simply majestic. Rambunctious. Utterly bonkers. SO MUCH FUN. Mary, Kaya, and their team of guides offer a truly unforgettable experience. I’ve learned (and laughed) more in three days with them than I’ve had all year. Met a lot of rad people and got to climb some of the wildest routes. Don’t even get me started on the campfire shenanigans. Can’t wait to see what adventures awaits for off-width!!!

Disclaimer: everything beyond crack camp will pale in comparison, my trip to Bishop following camp can vouch for that (no offense boulderers).”

“It makes you feel super special — you get so much ✨attention✨ and get to try hard routes with top-level climbers who are actually invested in your success. And it introduces you to future climbing partners and mentors, which a lot of climbers don’t have at all and is really valuable. I met so many amazing women that weekend. I now have so many mentors, partners, and resources I didn’t have before! Take this clinic!”

“I signed up for Mary’s crack camp super last minute when I saw that there was a cancellation. I hadn’t signed up for a crack camp previously because I didn’t think the experience would be worth the price, and I also have had somewhat negative experiences with guides in the past. My experience with Mary surpassed my expectations. She is extremely positive and encouraging, and made sure to get to know my personal goals so that she could tailor the class to fit them. My crack climbing skills following that weekend were exponentially improved. Since that class, I have felt a lot more confident jumping on challenging climbs and pushing my climbing grade. Overall, 10/10 weekend.”

WHAT TO EXPECT

These clinics are great for anyone with a general 5.9 fitness stoked on crack climbing! They are meant to take your trad/crack climbing to a whole new level. The clinic is led by AMGA single pitch Instructor and Assistant Rock Guide, Mary Eden. We will be keeping a low student-instructor ratio and have a professional photographer along for the entire clinic.

LOCATION – Crack climbing Utah

Moab, Utah. Surrounded by Canyonlands National Park and Indian Creek Moab is the epicenter of crack climbing in the USA. Crack Camp will be climbing at a variety of locations in the Moab/ Indian Creek area. You’ll find various parts of your body jammed in sandstone splitters during your time with us and you can be sure that you will leave with some of the best climbing memories of your life and a burning desire to return for more Utah crack climbing.

Day 1 we will meet and head to our 2WD group campsite and then off to our climbing destination! Will will camp together as a group each evening and climb together each day.
During the clinics we will cover key concepts of crack climbing; fingers to fists, wide climbing technique, placing traditional climbing gear, tape gloves, leading, technical systems and much more.

After the clinic, our professional photographer will send you high-quality images that you can share on social media, with friends and family, or place on your mantle or desk.

LOGISTICS

We have the group site picked out, 2WD vehicles can comfortably access this location. We will arrange to carpool at Red River Adventures and take into consideration those who may not be heading back to Moab when the clinic concludes. If you choose to drive your own vehicle to the campsite make sure you have a full tank of gas.

Please note! We will NOT be providing food! Please have what you need to eat for the duration of the clinic ready to go on the morning of day one.

We will be providing a full kitchen for the group to use. Everything needed for the group to cook, eat and clean up with will be available.

There will be a cooler space for food and drink for those that are joining us from a distance. Alcoholic beverages are allowed at camp and Red River Adventures will be providing cooler space.

We will be bringing enough water for the group for each clinic.

Red River Adventures will provide all the rope, anchors and equipment needed to facilitate the clinic. You are however welcome to bring any gear that you have. This gives you an opportunity to use it while climbing with a guide, discuss the pros and cons of various pieces and explore what you might need in the future.

YES! To guarantee space on the trip of your choice, we recommend reservations, especially on holidays and summer weekends. In order to provide the type of trip the we have become known for we do limit the number of people on a launch and we do fill up. In addition a lot goes into the planning of a river trip, including scheduling of guides, drivers, packing lunch for full-day and lunch trips and ensuring that our equipment is always in top-notch condition.

About Age Limitations

Youth Rate = 15 years and younger!
Adults = 16 years and up!
All participants on river trips are required to wear a Coast Guard approved floatation device (PFD). For Fisher Towers trips we use an age limit of 5 and kids must weight at least 40 Lbs. On Climbing and Canyoneering trips the limit is 8 years of age. Ask yourself, what kind of previous outdoor experience has the child had? Use your considered judgment on the child's preparedness. On the other end, folks well into their 70's have adventured with us.

Which Trip to Choose

We are thrilled to have the ability to offer such a wide variety or trips. We also realize that this can create confusion. We are a fantastic resource and look forward to helping you choose the trip that is perfect for you and your group. Please feel free to call or email with any questions you might have, we love to help. Often after a brief conversation with one of our staff the the answers become clear.

Where do we park/leave our things

There is plenty of secure parking on site at our offices. Valuables can be locked in your vehicles and will be perfectly safe for the duration of your trip. In addition we are more than happy to store anything that you may be extra concerned about in our offices while you are on the river.
Back to top

Are there bugs

Thankfully there are usually very few to no bugs on our trips. The we travel through some of the driest terrain on the planet so there is generally no standing water for bugs to breed in. At the same time the current in the main river section is too swift to allow for breeding. This being said sometimes there are gnats or mosquitoes.

About Swimming and Fishing

Swimming is as much a part of a great river trip as whitewater and cooking out. Guests are more than welcome to swim on all our river trips.

Had an amazing day climbing with John in Little Cottonwood and Big Cottonwood Canyons! Tacked on an extra day to a work trip to the area to do this. My first time doing multi-pitch, and first time climbing on rock beyond the limestone of southern Ontario. John was just great, I felt comfortable and confident with everything we tackled, and tried/learned so many new things. So happy I chose to do this, and would recommend Red River Adventures to anyone interested in doing something like this!

Shout out also to the business team for their graciousness when I had a scheduling issue. Can’t recommend enough.

This section of Colorado River doesn’t offer the most thrilling rapids, but they’re good fun and the surrounding scenery is spectacular. Our guide Molly was top-notch, and we definitely recommend booking the longer float with lunch for two reasons: (1) the longer trip includes the best rapid of the day and (2) lunch was surprisingly delicious - Molly’s signature “Conewich!”

Our guide Jordan, and everyone who works there, were amazing. Jordan was fun, extremely capable and knowledgeable. The scenery was equally amazing. My only complaint is that there was a fair amount of waiting. Can you do the safety briefing on the bus or something? Send the equipment out first? It would be nice if there was less time waiting around in the heat. At least there was a pavilion for shade. Overall, had a great time

The course “Rigging for Rescue in Semi-Technical Terrain” hosted by Red River Adventures and lead by Derek DeBruin was a great experience. We covered everything from active and passive protection placements, anchor building, various belay techniques and short roping in the context of moving an individual whom is being rescued safely over different types of terrain. We also went into when and where to utilize different techniques depending on the level of risk, technicality of terrain and competence of the rescuer. A scenario wrapped it up and put a bow on it, all for a very reasonable price. Thanks!

We went on a full day rafting adventure today. Our guide, Savannah, was awesome! All the guides were informative and well prepared. The information provided was interesting and didn’t seem rehearsed. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because the lunch provided was not something commonly preferred by most people. It would’ve been nice to receive a menu, so we could’ve brought our own sandwiches or power bars. When catering to the masses it’s better to provide simpler fare. Although I was impressed with the gluten free option.

We had a blast and highly recommend rafting with Red River Adventures!! My husband and I took our 5 kids, ranging from 6 years old to 15. Maggie was our guide and we loved her! She was extremely knowledgeable of the river and the surrounding areas. She was amazing with our one kid who was extremely nervous, talking with him the whole time about what to expect and when. She was also great with our one kid who wanted to row the entire time! Liz made us laugh while talking about the scenery and the local history. Another guide gave restaurant tips for after rafting. They helped keep the 40 minute bus ride interesting. And shout out to our bus driver! I wish I could remember her name! She had legit skills driving a huge bus while hauling a trailer of rafts!

Crack Camp with Mary Catherine Eden is the best thing any crack climber could dream of! She is beyond talented but also a great coach who can both push and support you with skill and compassion. If you want to improve your crack climbing or even just start crack climbing, this camp is a must! 10/10 would recommend

My son loves his climbing camps at momentum gym and now he got to see what it’s all for! Climbing with red river adventure out in the real world has blown his mind! What an unforgettable and amazing experience. No doubt we will be booking more climbing sessions with these fantastic people!

We aren’t exactly outdoorsy, I booked this when I knew we would be passing through Moab and I wanted to get my family out of our comfort zone and I am so glad I did. My 12 year old son and my husband would both rather read a book than go outside and they had an absolute blast. I chose Red River because they mentioned using smaller groups which appealed to my introvert soul. Everything from booking to leaving at the end was simple and easy. Our guide Emily was so much fun, full of facts about the region and skilled enough to keep my, less than adventurous family from drowning. Some of the reviews I read prior to booking complained about the river not being wild enough but this was exactly what I had hoped for. The rapids we did encounter were exciting and fun while giving us enough time to paddle and enjoy the scenery between the little adrenaline hits. My son had a grin on his face the entire time. Lunch was delightful. The other guests were courteous and entertaining. We did encounter other rafting companies and they were so full of rafters I would have been uncomfortable in their groups. . Our family of 3 was given our own raft with Emily and the larger groups were kept close to each other by their incredibly skilled guides. I was never worried about a thing and I’m so glad we chose Red River Adventures.

Great experience! My partner and I did the AM half day raft trip. The bus ride to the put in was very entertaining! Amazing views and fun rapids on the river! Our guide, Liz, was the best part though. She had so much interesting information to share with us. We were so lucky to have such knowledgeable guide! Thanks Liz!! I definitely recommend Red River Adventures.

Molly was an amazing guide for our 1/2 day mountaineering trip. She made my husband & I feel so assured of our safety while rappelling in beautiful canyons while keeping a super positive & good humored nature. She was a blast to hike with & we recommend her & Red River Adventures to anyone. We hope to have more adventures with them in the future!
