Surprisingly diverse park  Sucess!

Regular hiking, cross-country walking, and bouldering. I despair at the recent crowds that have turned it into Disneyland.

CRHTing  Sucess!

Backpacked the CRHT from Upper Covington Flats to Twin Tanks, with a detour to Hall of Horrors. Some nice off-trail camps to be found and warm enough to skip the tent. Plenty of coyotes around to keep things amusing.

Climb climb climb  Sucess!

Lots of climbing throughout the years, but NOT my favorite place, too crowded and noisy.

Desert wonderland  Sucess!

Here in the off-season, I guess; there were few people around climbers or otherwise. Scrambled and friction climbed up several nice rocks. The texture is really amazing, one can make it up pretty amazing formations. Also a nice quiet place to camp, at least in October.

Should Season Paradise  Sucess!

August 2005 was my first trip. Moved to SoCal in 2010 and make several trips a year. I'm a big fan of remote climbs off the beaten path. Who needs an audience?

great rock  Sucess!

This was my 2nd visit to j-tree, first time when my son was 2 was just a quick visit and a few short hikes. 2nd time (18 years later) spent 5 days climbing different routes, more remote routes, lots of 5.9s and 5.10s - Dow would not let me be a slacker :). Took 970 photos on this trip!!! and did a few hikes as well.

Quick Trip  Sucess!

Just a quick road trip though the area to see what the park is like. Rock climbing is not really an interest of mine, so I doubt we will be back often, though it is certainly a very interesting area ecologically. It's always surreal to see snow and Joshua Trees together.

Great Rock  Sucess!

Took a bit to get used to the rough nature of the rock. But is one of my favorite climbing areas in CA.
