What tops the high-desert beauty of Joshua Tree National Park? Gazing out from the summit of one of its unique rock formations.

Whether you’re a first-time rock climber or a seasoned crusher, whether you’re chasing beta tips or adventurous family fun, or if you're pursuing a professional American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) guiding credential, we’ll guide you to your goal. Our friendly, qualified rock climbing guides provide a fun and safe experience tailored to your rock climbing needs.

Choose your own climbing adventure! We offer full-day and part-day climbing, rappelling (abseiling), or personalized Joshua Tree rock climbing technical training, at your request. Can’t get enough?
