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 Canadian escaping the cold to seek 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!
