Climb Smart 2015…

October 2, 2015 · Posted in Archives, Call To Action, Climber Alert, Events, General, News · Comments Off on Climb Smart 2015… 

One of the most critical components of Climb Smart events is the support we get from local and regional organizations… this support stretches from guiding organizations and certified guides to organizations connecting climbers in the region. In a few weeks we will come together once again (October 16-18 weekend) to kick off the climbing season with celebration, education, stewardship and plain old fun.

One of the most relied on and valuable partners of Climb Smart is the SCMA (Southern California Mountaineers Association). This group anchors the kitchen setup, along with JOSAR, and brings the amazing breakfast to life on Saturday and Sunday of Climb Smart weekend. For a requested donation of $5, Climb Smart attendees enjoy a morning feast to power their days in the Park, learning and reinforcing technique and skills for adventure climbing in Joshua Tree. (Dinners are already included in the Registration, FYI).

Here’s a link to an article and images from past Climb Smart events… give them a visit and make sure to say THANKS when you see them on site later this month!

Thanks to all of you supporting Climb Smart 2015. The event is going to be amazing… if you need to register still, now is the Time! (It’s filling up quickly, and it’s limited space)

There simply isn’t a better excuse to come to JTree, give back to the Park and build lifelong relationships with other climbers of all skill levels. Did we mention swag?

First 50 registrants to camp with us get limited campsites at the festival grounds, directly next to the Sportsman’s Club in Joshua Tree. Don’t miss this annual gathering that supports FOJT, Joshua Tree Search & Rescue and other key climbing advocacy groups. <
