Come discover the international destination of Joshua Tree National Park and its diverse and exciting rock climbing. From long and exciting multi pitch routes to easy and fun top ropes, Joshua tree has it all.
Joshua Tree National Park is located in southeastern California. Declared a U.S. National Park in 1994, it is named for the Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia) forests native to the park. It covers a land area of 790,636 acres (1,235.37 sq mi; 3,199.59 km2).
The rock itself is quartz monzonite, which is very compact and provides lots of friction. The best rock sports a coating of “desert varnish” or patina which darkens and solidifies the rock appreciably. Joshua Tree provides world-class climbing both in cracks and on the face and Flux Adventures can help you to explore it all.
Joshua Tree provides easy access to many climbs, as well as longer approaches for those who like to explore and climb in more remote areas. Some of the most popular areas at Joshua Tree National Park include Hidden Valley Campground, Real Hidden Valley, Echo Rock Area and Indian Cove. With that said there are more than 400 climbing formations and 8,000 climbing routes. Essentially, there is climbing for everybody at all levels, from beginner to expert.
The best time to climb in Joshua Tree is February through April, however, this area is known to have good weather and lots of sunshine all through the winter.
