Friends of Joshua Tree - Climb Smart 2022

Now in its 26th year, the largest gathering of climbers at Joshua Tree, Climb Smart, kicks off the climbing season in Joshua Tree with education and stewardship as the primary pillars, as well as the chance to give back to our Park. Over 300 attendees are anticipated every year, and the mix of climbers represents a unique blend of new entrants to the sport and old-school traditionalists. Partners in anchoring the Climb Smart presentations include the National Park Service, top athletes, native tribes of the region and local legends. One of the unique offerings at Climb Smart is working with professional climbing guides in mini-clinic format which allows for getting to know several different organizations, style differences, and consistencies between climbing schools. In the end, all of the guide organizations invited to participate in Climb Smart are top shelf, longstanding professional outfits permitted by the Park and have strong reputations in the climbing community.
