After Hueco we went back to Cochise Stronghold in Arizona to get back on a rope and enjoy the peaceful camping in this serene granite paradise. It was just a quick stop but enough time to tick off a few more classics around the camping in West Cochise.

Soon it was time to head back to Joshua Tree for the first ever On the Rocks international climbing trip. I was so excited about this new chapter in my guiding career! Jtree always seems to be a meeting place, and the stars have aligned and brought several of our friends from around the globe here at the same time. It is so nice to have a big group of great friends staying with us in Hidden Valley Campground.

The entire experience of guiding in Jtree has been surreal. I can honestly say that the happiness I experience with guiding trips like these is equal to the feeling of sending a really meaningful climb. I taught a 4 day Course in the park with two amazing women and I couldn't of asked for better weather or people either. I am all smiles from ear to ear. I am living the dream, and sharing this dream and passion with other people is so incredibly rewarding.

My next Joshua Tree guiding adventure starts next week, and I can't wait to share this amazing place with another lovely Canadian escaping the cold to seek out new rocks and adventures with me. Both guiding and rock climbing are the most rewarding things I have ever experienced in my life and I am so thankful for this incredible job I have and life I live.
'Till next time friends!
