We partnered with Tepui down in Joshua Tree National Park for some camping and climbing adventures.
While the desert is still cold in early spring, it’s an ideal time to climb and camp under a star-filled night sky. Nothing beats desert night scapes and a campfire with friends after a day at the crag.
Down in Joshua Tree National Park, we met up with our friends at Tepui, whom create rugged and comfortable rooftop tents, and professional climber Alex Johnson for a spring weekend filled with cooking, camping, and climbing.
Joshua Tree is a rock climbing mecca in southern California. With plenty of climbing, including bouldering, sport, and trad routes, it’s a great place to camp since many sites are hiking distance from various rock routes. Our first night, we stayed at the Hidden Valley campground, where Alex climbed multiple lines on Joshua Tree’s rough granite.
After our adventures at Hidden Valley, we spent the next night outside of the national park--camping and cooking in that desert cool evening after a hot day on the rocks.
