Some of you will remember 2008 when Clark experienced his first battle with cancer. He had been in remission for several years, but recently cancer has returned and is now in stage 4.

Climbing in Southern California for over 35 years, Clark has many first ascents at Taquitz, Suicide and Joshua Tree. His most valuable contribution to our community has been his decades of guiding climbers and honoring and passing on local climbing ethics that have kept these areas safe and available to all.

Generously mentoring young climbers, offering beta to visitors, rescuing many injured or stranded climbers at great risk….  Clark Jacobs sets an example we can all aspire to.

Medical insurance is covering most of Clark’s current treatments, but he is unable to work now and needs our help with his daily needs for food, trips to the hospital etc.
