Hello!
Three brothers and their families seek a guide for a half day at Joshua Tree the week of Feb 20. We are beginning climbers with very little experience -- just want some time on the ropes with someone who knows what they are doing. Very flexible schedule, anytime Sunday through Thursday. I've tried emailing guiding companies found online. I though I'd ask if there were any freelancers interested. You can email me directly at:

campfamjoshtrip@mail.com

We are looking for fun experience, safe, laid back, kid friendly, good times.

Thanks much,

K

You've "tried" emailing guiding companies? Did they not respond? You can also call them.

Here's one I recommend for Joshua Tree:

You would ask for a guide for you and your friends, as opposed to signing up for a course.

Have fun.

If you want to climb in Joshua Tree National Park you can't have a "freelance guide." All guide services MUST have a permit to operate within the park. The Park Service, local guide company's and local climbers frown on rouge non-permitted paid guides in the park. Joshua Tree has many GREAT guide services permitted to work in the Park but they are quite busy this time of year. You might want to try phoning them if they haven't responded to emails.

If you want a top notch guide, then you can consider contacting one off of the AMGA website. amga.com/hire-a-guide/

I'd second this suggestion. Hire a permitted and AMGA certified guide or instructor.
