Join us to kick off the JTree climbing season October 21-23 with a host of sponsors, including for the first time ever the Joshua Tree National Park. It’s their 75th anniversary, and they are bringing high energy and entertainment to add to the mix of education, advocacy, swag giveaway, stewardship, comraderie and plain old FUN. Early bird pricing applies until September 1, so save $20 on the already great pricing for this special gathering of the tribe. Special guest athletes will be present to celebrate, participate and inspire. This is the first and best time to support FOJT and Joshua Tree Search & Rescue as the Park enters the General Management Plan review… which will shape climbing policy nationwide.
