Some of you will remember 2008 when Clark experienced his first battle with cancer. He had been in remission for several years, but recently cancer has returned and is now in stage 4.

Climbing in Southern California for over 35 years, Clark has many first ascents at Taquitz, Suicide and Joshua Tree. His most valuable contribution to our community has been his decades of guiding climbers and honoring and passing on local climbing ethics that have kept these areas safe and available to all.

Generously mentoring young climbers, offering beta to visitors, rescuing many injured or stranded climbers at great risk…. Clark Jacobs sets an example we can all aspire to.

Medical insurance is covering most of Clark’s current treatments, but he is unable to work now and needs our help with his daily needs for food, trips to the hospital etc.

Please click on the link below to send a credit card donation through The Friends of Joshua Tree.

You may also mail a check directly to Clark at the following address:

Clark Jacobs PO Box 1653, Idyllwild CA 92549

Please, let’s show Clark that our community cares.



also share up to your network in social media, gyms, and even (gasp!) in person or snail mail! Clark has given so much to us, let’s return the favor.

Hey admins, any chance we can get this as a sticky for a while? Also, I posted in the Josh forum, but Clark is well known in Idyllwild as well.

Thanks,
Robert

Bummer... I crossed paths with Clark at Suicide about a year and a half ago. My partner and I were practicing for our first multi-pitch and he hung out for a bit.. Then we ran into him later that eve and we shared a beer or two. He gave us some good tips and had some interesting stories. Sending positive thoughts your way, Clark!
