The Climbing Life Guides is a small outfitter based in Joshua Tree National Park with expertise in rock climbing Joshua Tree. They are organized to offer instruction (including lead climbing, belaying, self-rescue, multi-pitch rescue, rappelling, falling techniques and setting up top ropes) and guided tours over the many routes available at Joshua Tree. Joshua Tree National Park is one of the premier rock climbing venues in America (in the world, really) for beginning climbers. It has some 8,000 named climbing routes all of which are short. Most rocks are not more than 230 feet. That means that beginning climbers can experience a number of different types of climbs in one day. This may include single pitch climbs, multi-pitch climbs, short roping, and rappelling. All of The Climbing Life Guides guides are American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) approved. All guides are full-time employees of the outfitter and receive a menu of company benefits as contrasted to being independent contractors.
