Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

Winter adventures don't have to be about cold weather, ice climbing, or skiing...

We hope you have enjoyed a great summer climbing season and that your favorite crags and mountains have been a big part of it. As the leaves start to turn and the desert terperatures begin to fall, we have to remember that there are just as many warm and sunny climbing opportunities in the winter as there are in summer.

Red Rock Canyon, Nevada, and Joshua Tree National Park, California, provide excellent rock climbing and stunning scenery throughout the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Both areas offer tremendous variety. Joshua Tree has a stunning out-of-this-world landscape, and Red Rock is especially known for its long routes, both moderate and more difficult. Easy access and inexpensive flights add to the appeal: Joshua Tree is just 3 hours from LA (1 hour from Palm Springs) and Red Rock Canyon is only 20 miles from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.

Check out these following highlighted programs below.

See you at the crags,

The American Alpine Institute


Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree Scene

Joshua Tree National Park is a classic winter retreat for climbers of all levels. The colors, the plant life, the animals, and the rock in the high Mohave Desert create an absolutely breathtaking experience. The desert beauty of Joshua Tree is amazing, and this 4000-foot-high desert plateau is a rock climber's playground.  The combination of the Southern Californian weather, pleasant camping, and the countless boulders, cliff-faces, and rock outcroppings come together to create one of the most sought-after climbing destinations in America.

Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Climbing Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is unique in North American climbing. No other area offers such extensive climbing in a beautiful desert environment while at the same time enjoying the ease of access and amenities of a nearby metropolitan area. In addition to hundreds of one-pitch sport climbs, Red Rock boasts an unusually large number of medium length and very long multi-pitch routes that are of high quality and moderate difficulty.  Many fine climbs of grade III or IV in length lie in the 5.6 to 5.8 range. Some of the harder routes with a difficulty of 5.9 or 5.10 can only be described as desert classics.

Warrior's Way Commitment Camp

Warrior's WayThis 2-day camp addresses the fear of falling and helps you to improve commitment. We'll practice falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. We'll do this in small increments, creating appropriate progressions for each individual participant. You'll leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.
