Joshua Tree Basic Rock Climbing Course

Desert sun, solid granite, and a learning to lead option

For begin­ner climbers with lit­tle or no expe­ri­ence, or gym climbers look­ing to get out­side, this intro course sets you up for suc­cess. Set in the beau­ti­ful lunar land­scape of Joshua Tree Nation­al Park, our climb­ing school offers easy access to every vari­ety of rock climb­ing imag­in­able. You’ll begin with fric­tion climb­ing to devel­op your bal­ance, and then incor­po­rate both face and crack climb­ing tech­niques before pro­gress­ing to more chal­leng­ing climbs. With our high­ly qual­i­fied guides you will learn stan­dard climb­ing pro­to­cols under the guid­ance of expe­ri­enced and sup­port­ive instructors. 

Equip­ment, belays, anchors, knots, rap­pelling and low­er­ing are all thor­ough­ly cov­ered. An addi­tion­al objec­tive of this class is for stu­dents to be able to eval­u­ate and set up their own top ropes. Our guides lead the way as they teach you how to set-up top ropes, rap­pel, and lots of climbing! 

Add a third day and learn lead climb­ing fun­da­men­tals to take you one step clos­er to climb­ing one your own, with­out a guide.
