Endless possibilities...

We will be out in Joshua Tree the entire weekend. Come for 1 day, 2 days, or stay all weekend. Come to camp, climb, hike away or do it all!

Where to Stay (Optional):

For those who would like to stay camping out Friday or Saturday night (or both), your have one of several options:

• Walk-in and pay on any available campground inside the park (no cell service here). Current prices of overnight camping can be found here (http://www.nps.gov/jotr/planyourvisit/camping.htm), along with other specific campground information.

• Use Reserve America (http://www.reserveamerica.com/) or Recreation.gov (http://www.recreation.gov/) to book a site online (no cell service at most campgrounds).

• OR you can stay at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground (http://jtlake.com/reserve.htm) for only $8 per person/per night. Reservations also available online here (http://jtlake.com/reserve.htm). (Recommended!!! - few miles outside the park, has cell service, hot showers, flush toilets, nice place, etc.)

You are 100% responsible for your accommodations. Many will post comments or suggestions, which will help us all figure out where everyone will be.

Where to Climb (Optional):

Joshua Tree is a world famous area with thousands of routes, countless boulder problems and a very limited number of campsites. Long popular as a winter destination, it's appeal has only grown throughout the years as climbers of all abilities have discovered the mild temperatures, grippy rock and surreal landscape which make it a must visit area on any climber's list.

The fee to enter Joshua Tree is currently $15 per vehicle (http://www.nps.gov/jotr/planyourvisit/feesandreservations.htm), which is good for 7 days from the date on the receipt. When time permits, the rangers will check the out-going traffic for valid receipts. An Annual Pass is also available, and at $30, stands as an excellent value for those visiting the park more often. Both are purchased at the check stations at the entrances to the park. Cash and credit cards are accepted. If we happen to be on the same page and are able to keep good communications, we may be able to set up flex carpools that may work too.

For Campers - What to Bring:

• Firewood, all your camping gear, food, sun protection, walking/hiking shoes, shelter, etc.

For Climbers - What to Bring:

• Water

• Sun protection

• Lunch and/or snack

• Walking or Hiking shoes

• Rope, harness, climbing shoes, belay device, quickdraws, helmet (if you have one), etc... if you don't have gear you won't climb!

• Any other equipment you may have for TR/sport/trad climbing

Remember the weather can change very quickly so bring warm or cold weather clothing.
