Arcadian Ascents helps students to master the art of open-air rock climbing with guided excursions and onsite lessons for all experience levels. The maximum student-to-instructor ratio for each class is 4:1, and all guides and instructors have earned certifications as single pitch instructors from the American Mountain Guides Association and as wilderness first responders from the Wilderness Medicine Institute. Private and group courses cover material from basic rock movement to custom-designed courses on speed climbing, self-rescue, and advanced rope technique. Arcadian Ascents provides all equipment for most courses, including climbing shoes, helmets, ropes, and mountain-goat bribes.

Rock-ascending buffs can also expand their experience and strive for new personal achievements on guided trips to Mexico or Spain. Veteran climber and guide Josh Wieberg leads his charges with experience climbing from Canada to Italy and wields his BA in history and philosophy to teach in public schools when not scaling their brick walls.

Situated along the meandering Moosa Creek, the fairways of Castle Creek Country Club sweep gracefully through the foothills of Temecula Wine Country and located near three major casinos. The 1948 Jack Daray blueprint escorts players through a 6,688-yard labyrinth, hemmed in by oak-forest barriers and mottled with bunkers of white sand. After completing a testy front nine that includes the 624-yard par 5 sixth hole, players embark on the most difficult stretch of the course in holes 10, 11, and 12. These holes—a 450-yard par 4 followed by back-to-back par 5s—demand that players demonstrate an ability to hit the ball far, leaving many contestants exhausted, bleary-eyed, and swinging at golf balls that don’t exist.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,638 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 72 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 134 from the back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole

OneSpaRetreat tends carefully to hands, feet, and noses with a trifecta of protrusion pampering. The hand-and-foot scrub rescues buried-alive skin from layers of dead cover ($40). In addition to standard filing and trimming, the 40-minute spa manicure includes a nail-strengthening treatment, ensuring the guardians of your body’s fingerprints can fend off plagiarizers and nosy detectives ($55). A hand-and-arm massage relaxes tense reachers, giving them back the strength to low five toes after the 50-minute pedicure concludes ($65). Callous removal and an aromatic foot soak appear among the pedicure’s perks, as well as a foot-and-leg massage that makes unmassaged trunks pout with jealousy. A 20-minute aromatherapy steam treatment concludes the experience, sending soothing smells into your brain’s nose while your mind’s eye admires freshly polished nails ($40).
