First Descents is honored to now serve healthcare professionals who have dedicated their lives to improving health outcomes for our alumni and their families. It’s time we care for those who care for our community. Whether you are feeling burned out by work or in need of connecting with others leaving their mark on the fight against cancer and MS, this program is for you. Our adventure programs provide the respite, renewal, and connection you deserve.
Home to world-class desert rock climbing, the La Sal Mountains, and the Colorado River, Moab is one of the top adventure destinations in the world. With easy access to thousands of sandstone routes and views of soaring red cliffs and canyons, Moab is one of our most unique and accessible climbing programs we offer. On this First Descents adventure, you’ll spend four days conquering sandstone climbing routes and rappelling into beautiful canyons with the incredible guides at Colorado Mountain School before relaxing over nightly campfires and chef-prepared meals at your cabins which are nestled at the base of the La Sal mountains overlooking Canyonlands National Park!
