F.A.Q.

Do you rent gear?
No, we currently do not rent gear of any type. Issues of safety, liability, and equipment integrity preclude this option.

Do you have guidebooks?
Yes! We have A Climber’s Guide to Big Bear Lake & Holcomb Valley Pinnacles by Brandon Copp, Holcomb:  Sky Forest Gold by Chris Miller and Chris Owen and Joshua Tree Rock Climbs by Wolverine Publishing

Do you have climbing lessons/guided trips?
No, access issues currently preclude commercially guided trips. This issue is being researched.

How will proceeds benefit local crags?
The San Bernardino Mountains are a popular get-away for many folks, providing respite from busy, loud, and dirtier environments. Unfortunately, litter is left by visitors – sometimes by accident or ignorance. Regardless, we think that clean climbing areas help everyone enjoy what Big Bear Valley has to offer. Part of our commitment to benefit local crags include the organization and sponsorship of local crag clean-ups. This includes provision of trash bags, drinks, and snacks for volunteers. Once we get going, such activities will be posted on this website (hopefully mid to late summer). For more information, email info@gopaddleacanoe.com.
