About Our Private Guide Trips

may include top rope climbing, rappelling, single pitch climbing and multi-pitch climbing. Some students work on building skills such as crack climbing, anchor building, lead climbing, or self-rescue. We can provide shoes, harness, and helmet if needed at no extra cost.

Joshua Tree is famous among climbers from all around the world. It is considered a “must go” area for any serious climber, and in contrast it is the perfect place for beginners to learn as well. The surreal landscapes of giant boulders and Joshua Trees certainly will boggle the senses.

A full day of private guiding at Joshua Tree is a great way to improve your technique. Joshua Tree climbs are tremendous because they require such a broad base of movement skills. Improve your smearing, edging, smedging, jamming, lay-backing, or chimneying while sampling some of Joshua Tree’s excellent routes.

More Details

If you are a little more experienced, try a 2-3 pitch trad climb on Turtle Rock, Intersection Rock, Echo Rock, The Sentinel, or Lost Horse Wall.  Your guide will lead the pitches and you will follow and remove the protection.  This is a perfect introduction to multi-pitch climbing and will certainly provide some special views!

The environment is extremely fragile in Joshua Tree National Park, and therefore we incorporate Leave No Trace ethics into everything we do.  We advocate for this threatened global treasure because we have a duty to preserve it for generations to come.

Our guides are AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructors or higher level certification.  In addition, our guides are either certified Wilderness First Responders or have First Aid and CPR certifications.
