The experience of a lifetime

The landscape of Joshua Tree National Park is uniquely magical. Desert-like, with rock formations of quartz monzonite, a type of granite, the park is home to a variety of wildlife. Rock art, including petroglyphs and pictogryphs, can be found if you’re looking carefully, etched and painted on the walls and patina. Apex is a permitted guide service in the park, and is thus allowed to guide at all established climbing areas and routes at the park. This makes it possible for a massive number of phenomenal climbs, varying from single-pitch routes to three-to-six-pitch routes. With more than 8,000 established routes in Joshua Tree National Park, you can be certain that our guides will provide you with a memorable climbing experience away from the crowds.
