Private Rock Climbing Lesson in Joshua Tree / Palm Springs Architectural Tour

The group can split up this morning, with some going rock climbing in Joshua Tree and others going on an Architectural Tour in Palm Springs.

Rock Climbing -- After breakfast, depart and drive about 1 hour to the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

Enter the park and meet your private guide for a morning rock climbing adventure inside the Park. Your guide will tailor the climbing activities to your exact needs and levels, and will provide all of the equipment required (including helmets, climbing shoes, and harnesses) for an afternoon on the famous walls and spires of Joshua Tree. The park has great climbs for kids, and more challenging routes for older teens and adults. There are also opportunities for easy scrambling/roped climbing to reach the summit of some spectacular rock formations. A gourmet picnic lunch will be served.

Palm Springs Modern Architecture -- The tour includes the history of Palm Springs, the people who lived, worked and vacationed here, the Hollywood stars that played and built homes here and the architects, builders and designers who, from the late 1930s through the early 1970s, developed the "desert modernism" style for which Palm Springs has become famous. Following your tour, you’ll visit and have lunch at the expansive Annenberg Estate, also known as Sunnylands. The 200-acre estate was designed and built in the 1960s by architect A. Quincy Jones and has hosted numerous historic high-level retreats for world leaders over the past four decades. Enjoy lunch at the café and walk the extensive gardens.

Return to your resort in the mid-afternoon to enjoy the pools and spa.
