Rock of Ages is an obstacle-course of excitement tucked into a landscape of fins and petrified dunes. This route is a step back in time to a prehistoric age.

canyoneering Moab UtahWe start by hiking up the Pritchett Canyon 4x4 Road to a deep narrow canyon entering from the east. There are several minor obstacles climbing up that we will rope up for. After you climb out the top of the canyon turn around and look back at Chimney Arch and a magnificent large valley. Further up the canyon you will be surprised by Pool Arch. The opening is 90-feet high.

The drainage will hook around to the south and enter a short section of slot canyon. The slot canyon section is inspiring and contains several potholes that might require wading. The slot section ends at a 50-foot rappel. From the bottom of the 50-foot drop the canyon swings to the south and deposits you at the top of a 100-foot rappel. The bottom half of the rappel is free hanging and deposits you in a lush grotto.

We head back out the 4x4 trail to Moab. The total length of the trip is 5 miles long.
