For a weekend in October, the Joshua Tree Lake Campground turns into a climber’s meeting ground for Climb Smart.  If you arrive midday don’t expect to find much more than tumbleweeds at the campground.  That’s because everyone is in the park getting cliniced by some of the best in the business.  This year one lucky bunch got a clinic from Peter Croft, thanks The North Face!

As the sun starts to set the campground fills with hungry climbers.  Once everyone’s bellies are full with the included dinner people get ready for some awesome raffles, schmoozing with the vendors in hopes of some free shit, films, and a rad presentation by a professional climber.  This year Brad Gobright and Peter Croft spoke.

If you’re down for a good time, informative clinics, and some rad climbing make sure you come to Climb Smart 2017.  But get your tickets early, 2016 sold out!
