Granary Canyon


Awesome wilderness canyon with many fantastic rappels and superb arches!

Very few Moab canyons contain as many exquisite natural arches as the journey through Granary Canyon. And what a journey it is! Six fantastic rappels and a lot of tricky scrambling are encountered within the depths of this remote canyon, which houses at least seven major arches and scores of smaller ones. Over the course of this one-way hike we’ll descend over 2,000 feet! And despite the day’s numerous rappels, this canyon tour is within reason for adventurous first-time rappellers. Are you ready?

Kai and her team were remarkably professional, knowledgeable, and capable. The booking process was seamless and our day in the canyon was one we will never forget. Kai made us feel safe and led us through an unbelievable day. On this full day excursion, we did not encounter any other groups, which was an added bonus to the trip.

Just got back from our amazing grainery canyon trip.The best trip I have taken in Moab. Beautiful red rock scenery and there were several ancient grainery for storing corn and some very old rock art. The trip is long with 6-7 rappels, we bypassed one and down climbed to the canyon floor. Great photo opportunities of repelling through the snail and the onion. The last rappel is a spectacular 200 feet to the Colorado river. Our guide Ed was great guy and knew all the history of the canyon and where to take the best pictures. The scenery in and out of the canyon is stunning we did not see anyone else all day. Great day with great folks i would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for an out of the ordinary adventure
