About the book
Explore one of the world’s great climbing areas, Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California, with this newly updated guide to climbing! The 3rd edition of Joshua Tree Rock Climbs is our fattest book, weighing in at over 500 pages. Renowned for its intoxicating combo of demanding trad climbing, exotic granite formations, unique flora, and laid-back outdoor living, Joshua Tree is a must-visit destination on every rock climber’s life list. Most come back year after year. For over half a century, the Yosemite Valley climbing greats “trained” in Joshua Tree in the cooler months, leaving a fascinating legacy of hard, classic climbs.
Prefer mellower fare? The variety of easy and moderate routes in the Park is second to none. It’s a great place to introduce someone to the sport. Every discipline of rock climbing is represented: cracks of all sizes, overhanging face climbs, delicate edging problems, friction slabs, corners, overhangs, arêtes — you name it! Toproping has a long tradition here, and some of the hard topropes are world class. Though true sport climbs are in the minority, most climbs here are a mix of gear and bolts and require only a small rack, making this a great place to develop your “old-school” skills.

The author
Robert Miramontes first visited Joshua Tree National Park in the mid 1980s and began a life-long obsession with climbing and bouldering. His love of the park inspired the cultivation of another passion — photography — and combining these passions led to the creation of this book. Robert has now written six books for the area, including this one, as well as the Wolverine titles Joshua Tree Bouldering and Joshua Tree National Park: The Insider’s Guide. He lives near the Park with his wife Christina, also a climber, and daughter Alexandra.
