img_24091Join 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.

    Hey Seth! Sorry for the delayed reply, I was at OR for a week and my brain just got back from Utah. This year’s Climb Smart will be really special with Lynn Hill, Peter Croft and Kurt Smith and Brittany Griffith anchoring the athlete lineup and, for the first time ever, the JTNP as sponsor! It’s their 75th anniversary and they want to honor the climbing community by contributing to the festivities with artists, music, etc…
    Also, due to the increased support we are getting on this year’s event, we are likely able to pay guides who donate their time at least a stipend of $100/day or so… still working out the mechanics on that, but at least we won’t be asking you to completely donate your time. And the sponsors usually put together a great swag package for contributing guides. So thanks for the interest Seth, and I will be in touch as we dial in the deets. Cheers! Kenji
