All guided outings and classes are taught and led by seasoned climber and rock instructor Markus Jolliff. Classes with Markus go beyond the basics, and include valuable “tricks of the trade” that he has used in his guiding practice for many years. Student/teacher ratios are never more than 6:1 to ensure individualized attention for each participant. For larger groups, other highly skilled guides may co-teach with Markus.

A variety of classes and private guided experiences are offered in Joshua Tree for climbers of all ages and levels of experience. Upon request, Markus also guides and teaches courses in Arizona, Red Rocks, NV and other areas.

Markus Jolliff Climbing Rock climbing classes and
guided rock climbs are enabling
and have allowed many people
to gain access to a part of themselves
that brings heaps of joy, gaining
more than they thought possible.
So please put on your smile and come
to Joshua Tree National Park for
some pure and excellent rock climbing
with Markus Jolliff. No ties required.

The best times to climb on the Joshua Tree National Park’s 6000+ routes is from mid-September to about mid- June, where the weather is some of the best North America can offer for rock climbing! Sunny days and blue skies seem almost endless, and when clouds come it’s unique and well loved by the dry land of this desert landscape. The great Mojave desert also provides strong winds that help climbers hang-on when their position is just right, so bring your goggles and hair ties! Most of all, be prepared to enjoy yourself in this High Desert setting where sunsets are of super quality.

Since 1966 Jolliffication has spread through California,
contagiously from celebration to celebration,
where many have caught-on to this merrymaking.
A climbing party in the desert!
