After some stretching, bouldering and a review of the Basic Rock Climbing Instruction I fundamentals, it's back to the ropes for some top-rope protected free climbing and rappelling. As you continue to refine the rock climbing basics, you'll encounter new and varied climbing opportunities and be exposed to more challenging terrain. We will climb an assortment of routes utilizing some of your newly developed climbing skills; face climbing, smearing, edging, palming, hand jamming, liebacking, chimney, stemming and other opposing preasure techniques. You will not be forced to climb higher then you must but will be highly encouraged to push past your comfort level.
Knowing how to get down from the top of a rock safely is a very important skill. You will learn rappelling skills (descending via a rope) and practice them on rock up to 80 feet high. Students will begin to make and assess their own individual and traditional anchor type placements using modern camming devices and various types of passive nuts. This is just another breathtaking day in Joshua Tree National Park to remember for a lifetime. Experience this place for yourself to capture the true essence of this desert wonderland.
Cost: $150 (Cost includes all climbing equipment and climbing instruction)
Minimum ratio is 3 students to 1 guide ratio.
As you will see your guide works very hard and is extremely skilled and gratuity for your guide is customarily fifteen to twenty percent when you are pleased with their performance.
