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.

Climb Smart 2010 opens new ground for the future

Well we could talk about it till the Bighorn come home, but some pics can tell the story better…. see slideshow below!

But suffice to say that the kickoff event for the 2010-11 climbing season in Josh was tons of fun, learning, gear giving and giving back to the Park in numerous ways. If you missed this year’s event, we are already planning for 2011, so get involved and help represent climbing in the Park by volunteering or otherwise supporting FOJT. Nuff Said, onto the pics… 

So there is a little taste… but if you have pics from the event, register in our gallery and post away!  This event is for all climbers after all, just like the Park, so take ownership get engaged and have some fun showing everyone your Fote Hog skills.
