A desert climbing + yoga adventure
November 14-18, 2018


There's no better time than the mud season to escape to the arid, sunny climbing mecca of Joshua Tree National Park. Join Mark Allen and Bree Dillon on a Mountain Bureau LLC program suited for the beginners and the seasoned yogis/climbers alike.

Climbing: Climbers from all over the world pilgrimage to Joshua Tree at least once in their lifetime. It has more established routes than any other climbing area in North America. The unique geology and desert environment create high quality granite crack and face climbing with pedestrian access from quaint campsites nestled into the landscape.  What climbers experience here today is the result of several generations of climbers establishing a premium Fall climbing sanctuary.

Yoga: This desert oasis is the dream outdoor studio. Its flat granite slabs, domed monoliths, and packed quartz sand make rolling your mat out for a yoga practice not only possible but inspiring. With the scents of sage and warmth of the sunshine floating through the air it’s not hard to breathe deeply.  Each day we’ll practice to the rhythm of the rising and setting sun giving you an opportunity to experience yoga as energy and yoga as recovery.
