3 days + 2 nights of climbing and meeting other climbers while also enjoying the 5 acre property located 15 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park. The space has a 3 bedroom house with options to stay in one of the bedrooms or in one of our 6 geodesic domes! You also have the option to camp outside on the property and the stars at night are spectacular out here.
The property has a hot tub, swimming pool, game room, outdoor movie area, horseshoes and outdoor games, a zen garden and many wellness amenities such as the yoga dome, labyrinth, and more!
This retreat is led by me, John Bebbling. I am a certified yoga instructor in San Diego but also have this cool space near Joshua Tree National Park I visit monthly. I am getting to know and falling more in love with the park and area each time I visit. I am an avid climber but am not a certified guide. A full or half day with a certified climbing guide from Golden State Guides can be included in the price as an option if you do not have outdoor climbing experience or just want a certified guide who knows the area like the back of their hand.
This property has been a passion project of mine and I would love nothing more than for it to become a place for climber's and all people who love nature and the park to enjoy, connect, and unwind. A retreat center & climber's hotel if you will. With the help of my lovely partner Shawna we are starting to make that dream come true and would love to share the property with you!
