R PollardRoute Climbed: Indian Cove Date Climbed: April 1, 2005

R Pollard

My boys and I spent two days at Indian Cove. One day of them scrambling all over the rocks at our campsite, then a day hike the next day up Rattlesnake Canyon. The weather was perfect, with water in the creek and perfect temperatures. Spring is the time for Indian Cove, be back next year for sure

Finally got to Josh in 1981 after arriving from NYC. At first it didn't seem right as I was used to climbing on "cliffs." My 1st route here was Lazy Daze, and that began the love affair. Some favorites over the years: Middle Age Crazy, Split Personality, Rubicon, Black President. Some FA's: Hang 'Em High, Siezure, Dyno Soar... (I think Shortimer and I got the second ascent on Games Without Frontiers.)

My first time rock climbing in Joshua Tree, with Dirk (Diggler), Lara, Vasilis, and Eszter. Followed and TR'ed several routes on Hidden Valley, Echo Cove, and Quail Springs area. Touch & Go (5.9) was the most memorable - thrilling climb and fun descent. The weather was very windy for the first 2 days but improved on the 3rd day. Gorgeous desert landscape with wide open views and beautiful wild flowers.

Fun place to rock climb. I also climbed an unnamed ( I think ) peak out of Indian Cove campground. It's apparently the largest peak in the Indian Cove area and some class 3 routes can be found on both sides. Fun little day hike.

Great place for cracks! Got my first two trad leads (5.7s). Had four solid days of climbing. First day was wet with snowmelt! It warmed up quite a bit by the end of the t'giving week, but we still managed to melt snow for water in the campground!!

Sweet climbing for sure. The weather wasn't as great as I was hoping but it was ok. Climbed Double Cross, Toe Jam, Double Dip, Stitcher Quits, Loose Lady, Hobbit Roof, and many others. I hope to get back maybe during the fall.

Most recent trip was MLK weekend 2005. Took a dayhike with climbing gear up Rattlesnake Canyon. After about 1.5 miles we cut across to our camp in Indian cove, a beautiful and very challenging day of scrambling and cross country route finding.

This was my first trip to Josh and it was tons of fun. Went with a bunch of really good climbers and was amazed that there were easy things for me to do that were fun for them, too.

We had a great time on our yearly trip to J Tree. We had about 20 climbers ranging in age from 11 to 50. Thanks Venture Crew 1214 Fullerton for Hosting the trip. Indian Cove was great and the weather was the best.

I've summited Joshua Tree Ntl. Park many times, & many different places.



Have wonderful memories from there, & anticipate & hope for many more to come! Smelling like J-Tree granite after a long day of climbing, surrounded by all of the rock formations & funked-out J-trees, with an impossibly big desert sky above (esp. full of stars), is sublime. Have hung out with some great people there, definitely one of the nicest things. First 'official' 5th-class free solo there, too. Even just beer & kind while chillin' is great there (well, even better than most places).



Fav' routes there (so far) include Stichter Quits (face), Double Cross (crack), Sail Away (comb. face & crack), & Palm Reader (crack).



Some of the most despicable routes I've ever done are there also, most notably Dogleg (terrible butt-scumming chimney/off-width) & Gaz Giz.
