    This was certainly one of the best experiences in my life. A mixture of fun, fear, adrenaline and fulfillment. Don’t need to be pro to do this! Murph was the best guide and teacher we could ask for and made the whole thing super fun, even though me and my partner are terrified of heights. Defiantly recommend this experience (if you can book with him, I highly recommend it). if you wanna try rock climbing, specially in Joshua Tree, this is the place!

    I had the time of my life! It was a one on one lesson with me and Murphy. He geared it to my fitness level. It was my very first experience with climbing so I was definitely a beginner. I did 3 climbs and Murphy was very patient with me. Very encouraging. I had a great day.

    My guide Joe is obviously a professional at rock climbing, and he was very patient in coaching me as a first timer to rock climbing. I was able to climb 3 different routes and successfully completed 2 of them. JTNP is indeed a world class rock climbing paradise, the view is spectacular.

    Our guide, Murph, was knowledgeable, safe and awesome. Our 3 boys, 13 , 10 and 7 have little to no climbing experience. He encouraged them to go as far as they wanted to and keep it fun. Kids left the day saying it was the favorite part of the trip! Would highly recommend Mojave Guides!

    We had the best time ever! Highly recommended!!! Our guide Matt was so nice, professional and fun! This was our first time doing rock climbing and we were able to climb to the top. If you worry if you can do it, we are not a huge athletic people so don’t worry. I’m not saying it’s easy and it’s definitely challenging but you will enjoy very much.

    Heather was an amazing guide. We connected which made climbing so much better. She made it fun and educational. She made my day.

    Mojave Guides ensured we had an excellent day in Joshua Tree. Seth was enormously helpful on the phone before we booked in regard to safety and how our 9 year old would manage the climbs. And our guide on the day, Luis, was exceptional - calm, confident, patient and also good fun. Thanks Mojave Guides - we will be back!

    Murphy was an amazing guide! We all had a blast (2 middle aged adults and a 9 year old). We learned a lot and always felt safe. We all made it to the top!

  • 31-Mar-2022

    It was so cool we got to do this just the two of us with a guide, we got a lot more climb time and personal attention. We learned a lot and loved it!

    We spent a private full day with Matt and it was everything we could have hoped for. Our son is a budding climber and Matt was able to provide him with many learning opportunities as well as challenging climbs while also allowing my husband and I and our adult daughter excellent beginner options as well. We all did some rock climbing, balaying and repelling. When we needed a break from climbing he took us on a super adventurous tour of a chasm which was both amazing and challenging. He directed our son to a terrific traverse bouldering problem that we ended up revisiting multiple times in the following days until he was able to accomplish it. All in all well worth it! We all felt safe the entire time. Highly recommend even if you’ve never set foot on a rock!
