About time to head back down that way, super cool times and lots of fun climbing. First time climbing there was Mar. 72 looking forward to making it 40 years worth of climbing this season
We've spent several winter climbing holidays there. Love the place.
did a great 10 or so mile hike to an oasis on a roadtrip with my father. 2nd time, years later/woke up with ice inside and out of my car I was crashing out in...before I was into roped climbing.
Spent a solid day of climbing here with Ski. Definitely worth the trip.
climbed here for 3 days or something in winter
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...
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.
Hiking around the national park on a school trip to California for 3 weeks.
Went on a little hike and drove around. I plan to go back and do some real climbing someday!
Looped from the Willow hole\Boyscout TH. Great off the map (traveled) hike. 16 miles round trip, 4 1/2 hours of which was spent on the traverse.
6 days of climbing in late March - early April. Some really hot days, enjoyed many trad climbs 5.5 - 5.9 throughout the park.
Great place to climb with Robin while Erik was still containable at 5 months old. Paternity leave rocks!
Went with Jeff, great times and quite the unique place! Like Dr.Seuss's the Lorax meets Bedrock from the Flinstones, surreal!
nice palm trees in the middle of the desert

Wish we could have spent more time there, but loved every minute of it.
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!
Always a good time in J tree. i have climbed there a lot mostly 5.9 and 5.10 all top rope. i also have been backpacking all through there mostly by Queens Mtn.
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.
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.
