Rock Climbing/Bouldering in Joshua Tree National Park
Summers in rugged Joshua Tree National Park in California can heat up to triple digits, which might put a damper on climbing enthusiasts who congregate here for its more than 400 formations and 8,000 climbing routes. Twilight offers a more optimal climbing condition: Climbing shoes work best in cooler temperature (better friction), and less sweaty hands mean a firmer grip. So strap on a headlamp and ascent a colossal Rosetta Stone boulder or scale the craggy Rattlesnake Canyon in the dark. Joshua Tree Climbing Life Guides is your best bet for tailored rock climbing experiences, including special requests such as night climbing (with commensurate experience).
