Joined by two other families with climbing-inclined children, I took my three children (ages 6, 10 and 13) to Joshua Tree specifically to rock climb. Owner, Sue, was extremely responsive and helpful in setting up two days of climbing (10 hours total) for 5 kids ranging in age and climbing ability (ages 6-16). With two instructors, Uprising expertly set up routes and instructed diverse personalities with incredible passion, patience and kindness. The kids felt encouraged and empowered, and all five came away having gained greater climbing knowledge and skill. The parents all came along and had a great time watching. Andy and Sue were phenomenal teachers and vastly experienced climbers. We would definitely come back and book with Uprising again. I highly recommend this company. They will help you avoid crowds and stay off the beaten path in order to maximize your climbing experience, while still encouraging you to stop every now and again and take in the beauty that JTNP has to offer. Superb!

Wayne is a veteran expert of climbing and of Joshua tree. I made an ad-hoc day trip to Joshua tree coming from New York with limited time and choosing Wayne helped me make the most of it . Wayne taught me more advanced technique of climbing with a focus on SAFETY, had intimate knowledge of all climbing routes and their difficulty grades. He even added some historical tid bits about the park itself. I will be coming back to Joshua tree with Wayne’s guidance to further my skillset. Thanks uprising!

We booked a day climbing in October and the two of us can not say enough good things about this experience. Sue was very responsive and answered all of our questions throughout the booking process. I think I had to call her a few times and she was always friendly and welcoming. When we arrived in Joshua Tree and began climbing with Andy we realized we could not have asked for a better guide. We are very new to outdoor climbing and we learned a ton of information about it from Andy. He was also very knowledgeable about Joshua Tree. Because of his extensive knowledge he was able to plan a day climbing that was best for our skill level. He took us to crags that were a good balance of challenges and fun. He was even even kind enough to share additional information about some of the best places to visit in the park. Overall we would highly recommend Uprising Adventure Guides to anyone considering rocking climbing in Joshua Tree. There are so many routes to choose from that if you aren't familiar with the area it can be overwhelming to try and plan a day on your own. Let the experts at Uprising Adventures Guides do the planning for you. If anyone is still trying to decide whether or not they should book, we did take some footage of our climbing day with Andy. The footage is on our YouTube channel (link in bio) Check it out if you are deciding if you want to book with Uprising Adventure Guides.

My girlfriend and I visited Joshua tree last week and decided last minute we wanted to do some climbing. We looked up Uprising Adventure and were able to schedule a reservation with Andy the following day. We had an excellent day of climbing with top-roping and sport climbing. Andy brought all the necessary equipment, showed us a nice variety of climbing routes and adapted the day to our skill level. He also gave us some great hiking suggestions for later in the day where we were able to see some old cave paintings. I highly recommend hiring an Uprising Adventure Guide to anyone wanting to climb in Joshua tree.

Sue and Steve took my sons on a guided climb and were simply outstanding guides! Their attention to safety was superb and they worked incredibly well with our 8 and 10 year olds. They provided encouraging and positive instruction while teaching important fundamentals of climbing. They were extremely professional and organized from the time we booked through the end of the climb, our boys had an enriching, adventurous and empowering experience, and our entire family had a wonderful time.
