Kevin was more than psyched! It was his first time climbing outdoors. He climbed at his local gym for more than 6 months and brought in some great skills to the rocks. It is amazing how much stoke can travel through the rope… and so we climbed many pitches and slowly worked ourselves to the very top of our small SD climbing paradise. The view was better than what we are used to. The ocean lookes like a shiny big lake to our feet and the reflecting sun made our faces even more glow. What a perfect day

Joshua Tree never disappoints with its unique style of climbing. Here Max on a climb that looks much harder than it actually is. We hiked all the way into Johnson's canyon to get on this gem. It was Max's first time climbing in the park and he was quite surprised by the funky moves he busted out and the stiff ratings. We kept hearing "this is the hardest 5.7 (and you could insert any rating here) I have ever done! Yes… Joshua Tree is no ego booster!! After a few pitches, he got the hang of it and suddenly palming, stemming and other odd moves were busted out with more ease. Good job Max!

Yesterday was a great day! We were sooooo psyched to celebrate Paul's bachelor party on tue rocks. These guys warmed up quickly after our nice approach hike to the rocks. We saw a lot challenges being tackled amd comfort zones pushed. It was almost everyone's first time rock climbing outdoors. What looked impossible soon was summited with huge smiles and feelings of accomplishment. To top of a great day, we also taught them how to rappel which was perfect for a "high gravity" day like this We had a blazt and look corward to seeing you guys back again.

Amazing session with Jamye and Kevin yesterday. These two were super fun. We laughed a lot and learned many little details that created quite a few "a-ha" moments. It was their first time climbing outdoors after 1.5 years of consistent gym climbing. One could tell, their moves were spot on! Now its time to learn some rope skills. We look forward to our next session. Belay on!

We had such a great time in Joshua Tree with Jeff. We ended up climbing over 10 pitches on 4 different formations. It was a calm day out after a stormy day. It was Jeff's first time in the park amd we kept hearing "wow, this is different – I have never climbed something like that!" Yes! JTree truly has its unique style and we made sure to sample as much of the diversity as possible!! Great day out.
