Another fun weekend in Joshua Tree National Park with Golden State Guiding and it's multi-pitch climbing participants! GSG guide Allison Terray facilitated another fun day in the park and took graduates from our G2C and Advanced G2C program up various multi-pitch routes throughout the park. Great to see the confidence building in these budding climbers! Keep up the good work guys!
Golden State Guiding was all over the place this past weekend in Southern California from the cliffs of Mission Gorge to the splitter cracks on Mount Woodson to the high desert in Joshua Tree! Big thanks to all that came out and to our guides Greg Davis, Allison Terray and guide apprentice Tyler Dandurand. It was a great weekend of climbing!
Guiding can be such a fulfilling way of life. Golden State Guiding had the privilege of taking out a Girls Leadership Program yesterday at Mission Gorge. The girls learned fundamental skills for climbing outdoors, sent some great rock climbs and completed an adrenaline filled rappel to top the day of with. It was awesome to see the girls push through mental barriers and conquer goals they set out to achieve. Great job to everyone on the hill yesterday!
Well that officially wraps up the first round of G2C (Gym 2 Crag) with Golden State Guiding and Vertical Hold Climbing Gym! Thanks to all of our participants that signed up for a month of outdoor climbing education and fun! We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and progress each of you had! Here are a few shots from yesterday's outing at Mission Gorge. Special thanks to GSG Guides Greg Davis and Kelvin Nguyen for facilitating some of the outings. Also special thanks to AMGA SPI aspirant Tyler Dandurand for helping out and Albert Cheng (aka Jimmy Cheng) for all the great photos. Looking forward to getting the next round of G2C participants outdoors!
