This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
About 20 years ago, Brett Sutteer visited Moab's slick rock and towering red cliffs. He fully expected to return to college in Salt Lake, but Moab's adventurous landscape captivated his soul and convinced him to never leave.
Brett soon saw a market for guided adventure tours and started his own business, Moab Cliffs & Canyons, a company that specializes in guiding half, full and multi-day trips for people all ages and levels who are interested in tower climbing, desert rock climbing, desert hiking and canyoneering.
Brett says that what first enthralled him about Moab was its breathtaking, undiscovered territory. But after seeing a magazine cover with a man mountain biking Moab's slick rock, he knew it wouldn't be long before the world discovered his secret haven — and he was right.
Brett believes that along with Moab's boom in popularity came a responsibility of preservation. This is why environmental education is an integral part of Brett's business. He tells me his tours provide the perfect opportunity to teach people about the land they're enjoying and to encourage them to take an interest in how Moab's lands will be used in the future.
Moab Cliffs & Canyons has five tour guides and is planning to offer more canyoneering and additional multi-day trips.
Brett hates the office with a passion, which is why his business is a perfect fit for him. He says he loves being in the field, interacting with people and learning about their backgrounds and travels.
It's those interests and Brett's passion for the earth's incredible landscape that make his tours into Moab's fluted canyons and soaring cliffs an unforgettable adventure.
