How I Conquered My Fear and Went Rock Climbing Outdoors in Joshua Tree National Park

My First Outdoor Rock Climbing Experience With Cliffhanger Guides at Joshua Tree National ParkHello everyone and happy Friday! Today I’m going to stray a little from my usual weekly update post. I’ve decided that I would like to start going more in depth about certain eventful days in my life, and here is the first one.
