ROCK CLIMBING GUIDES
Video 4 - Climbing
In addition to private rock climbing guiding, Stone Adventures also runs outdoor education programs to help indoor rock climbers safely transition to the outdoors. The classes are run both in the rock climbing gym and at Joshua Tree National Park. Below are some free tutorials made to help our students review. Check them out to either review and practice you new skills, or to get an idea of some of the skills we cover in our rock climbing courses. We hope to see you rock climbing in Joshua Tree!
