No Climbing, just Hiking  Sucess!

Not much of a climber---deathly afraid of heights, but JTNP is one heck of a nice place to hike! Nearly impossible to get lost because you can see for miles...

Cool Camping  Sucess!

Fun times sending the moderate classics about the park. Damn you, squirrel who ate all the bananas in the tent and then proceeded to shat everywhere.

One of my fav places  Sucess!

I've done several overnight backpacking trips out here as well as numerous dayhikes and car camping trips. Love it the most in the springtime when the park blooms!

Favorite retreat  Sucess!

Done a ton of camping and freehand climbing here ever since I was a little Scout. I always look for the tallest place and then try to climb that. Sometimes it works, sometimes I run out of time. I've also done the 49 Palms Oasis trail twice.

Intersection Rock - First Place I Rock climbed  Sucess!

From my initial climbing in JT in Hidden Valley, I have probably climbed at various JT sites about 200 times. Good climbing with easy access to most routes, for the most part "tailgate climbing". Great place to teach climbing.
