Why Choose Us?
California Climbing School has a perfect safety record and strives to increase the safety of the climbing community at large. We have a knack for finding beautiful, incredible climbs every time. We care deeply about Joshua Tree and inspire others to better stewardship of the land using Leave No Trace principles. Our guides know the terrain well enough to find a quiet area on a busy weekend, find shade on a hot day, or find great climbs protected from the wind. We are patient teachers who love sharing our passion for climbing. If you want to transform your climbing to a whole new level, we can give you the confidence you need to get there.
