Great place for "winter" climbing

Lots of routes over thirty+ years. Did a lot of training/instructing SAR stuff there and a few SAR missions. First visited the "monument" as a kid in the 1950s. So I guess I've been climbing there for almost 50 years (started age 4 in Devils Lake, Wisconsin). My goal, write a beginers climbing guide to Joshua Tree, fro cool fun 4th class routes to maybe 5.5 max. If you look at all the guides lately, a new person would be hard pressed to find "easy" stuff. Now who was it that was going to help me?

Hiking, BIking and Bouldering  Sucess!

Curtis and I spent two days here. Hiked numerous places, including Barker Dam and Cottonwood Springs Trails. Biked many of the dirt roads around the park. Bouldered in various places, including Jumbo Rocks Campsite. It was hot, especially our second day when we camped at Cottonwood: No shade except from a small tarp we brought.

Multiple Trips

I've made 6 trip to Joshua Tree, with another planned in November 2007. The first was with my brother in 2002 when I was just starting as a trad leader. Lots of great experiences there. Favorite routes include Overseer (5.9), Cakewalk (5.9), Dappled Mare (5.8), and Touch and Go (5.9). See my personal website for a complete list of J Tree routes that I've climbed plus some photos.

First time out climbing . . .ever! I climbed a few routes over the weekend. Got snowed on during the night, but had clear cold days to climb. Returned in February for more climbing. I"m sure I'll be back many times.

Headstone and Walk On The Wild Side  Sucess!

Headstone was a cool warmup. WotWS was an awesome face climb, however the route finding was a little tough cuz i was looking for the shine of the next bolt and went right on the top of the second pitch because i couldnt see the bolt to the left. I got on to a much harder climb with a nasty run-out use care!

Bouldering  Sucess!

I have only done scrambling ,hiking, and cross country hiking in J-Tree, oh yeah partying but nothing roped. I love this park, every direction you find something cool to do. Best time to hike though is at night with the moon up.

Route Climbed: various Date Climbed: December 30, 2004  Sucess!

Had big plans for this trip, but ended up raining most of the trip. But because of the rain we met a very nice couple and ended up climbing with them that only one nice day. Did some bouldering before that and lots of hikes. Very nice time and can not wait to go back. Hopefully it will be a dryer winter…

In that one day we climbed: Double Dip on Echo rock, Eff Eight in Mounds area (near Echo rock), Solar Technology and Men with Cow's Heads on Atlantis Wall in Lost Horse Area
