mentorship programs

Mentorship is deeply embedded into the culture of rock climbing. This is a sport that hinges on and thrives off of partnership and connection. One experienced climber teaching a less experienced climber the ropes. Passing on techniques, ideas, historical tall tales and stories of legends! Creating unforgettable experiences together that will last a lifetime.


Connection, Growth, and the Evolution of rock climbing -- that's what our mentorship programs are all about.


climbing mentorship 

Our climbing mentorship program is designed for those seeking long term, personalized guiding/coaching. One of the best ways to advance your climbing is by climbing with another, more experienced rock climber. All of our guides are the climbers they are today thanks to some influential mentors in their lives. That is to say, our guides are eager to pay it forward and are passionate about helping others find success in the mountains. 


This program lowers our full day rate from $425 to only $300/day when you sign up for twelve days of guiding during the Joshua Tree season (October - May). In addition to this 30% discount, mentees can also take advantage of an additional 15% off any of our other course or events in Joshua Tree.
