Rock climbing with our Cliffhanger Guide, Seth, was a highlight of our trip to Joshua Tree. We are a family of four (two adults and two boys ages 11 and 13) and all have some climbing experience, both in the gym and outdoors. Seth quickly figured out a great mix of safe yet challenging routes for us to climb. It was a great feeling for all of us to succeed on the more difficult routes with Seth guiding us all the way. He was a lot of fun to spend a day with and lunch was delicious.

I have climbed before, but hadn't been out in over a year. Mike was a great guide and we went up an awesome rock - Saddle Rock, beside the Ryan Mountain Trail. He was experienced and the conditions phenomenal.

I had no idea what to expect - but after I read the reviews on Trip Advisor I knew this was the place to go! I was right! Seth is a true professional and so much fun. We were both scared - and he was so patient with us! Took us to the most amazing place for lunch - incredible view, food and conversation. If you want to really experience Joshua Tree this is the place to book with.

Actually, there is and I was scared. But Kelly was so positive and good with out family that she made us all feel accomplished.

Read the attachment they send you before hand, b/c we didn't and looked like total rookies without pants or enough water. You can buy water for $1 a bottle across from the meet up spot in town.

So Kelly, our guide, was great - totally supportive, positive and safe! And Sabra (owner) helped prep our climb, was also wonderful. Very memorable and unique experience. Only complaint is having to pay for entry into park. It's probably possible to include that as part of fee up front.

Scenery is so beautiful and unusual, that even if you have Cliffhangers guide you on a hike, you will see some truly incredible sights. Bring your camera!

We had never rock climbed before. We didn't really know what to expect. We did a 1/2 day with Kelly and it was AMAZING! One of the most fun 1/2 days in an outdoor adventure we have ever had. Kelly knew her stuff and was super fun to be with. I can't recommend her enough! Top notch!
