JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK: A ROCK CLIMBER’S PARADISE


With over 9000 established rock climbing routes, Joshua Tree is the worlds largest climbing area! Top-roping, single pitch freestanding summits, multi-pitch climbing, bouldering, crack climbing, slab climbing, you name it, Joshua Tree’s got something for everybody!

As long time locals and advocates for Joshua Tree, we are committed to the local community, economy, and environment.

This dedication means that we go above and beyond to share with you what makes Joshua Tree special. From the Park, to the superb arts and music scene, we are here to help you immerse yourself in a place unlike any other. We firmly believe that the best vacation experiences happen when you step out of the day to day tourist attractions and get to spend some quality time with the people that know the environment, the community, and the local culture on a very intimate level.

Beyond rock climbing Joshua Tree National Park is simply a place of beauty and awe. The Mojave Desert, is another worldly landscape that supports many species of rare desert plants and animals including big horn sheep, desert tortoises, frogs and toads, 6 kinds of rattlesnakes, numerous species of cactus and other fascinating plants, and the unique Joshua Tree itself (actually a type of yucca, not a tree).

The native Americans have been calling Joshua Tree home for thousands of years, as evidenced by the many pictographs found throughout the park. Joshua Tree National Park is truly a unique landscape that begs to be explored…
