I think this was the first route I ever did in Joshua Tree. It was a memorable one.
After failing on Bearded Cabbage, I soloed this route just before sunset to redeem some ego. Down climbed the Right Ski track.
Grueling approach. Too slaby. The scenery could benefit from a Walmart or two.
Had always missed doing this on prior trips to JTree. Fine climb. 2nd pitch is PG.
best to just go for it instead of looking at all the pro. Super fun climb
Climbed this route many times. The traverse is a little intimidating and creates a lot of rope drag if climbing the whole route in one pitch.
I climbed this in 2002 or 2003 and had to hang on a cam at the crux. Oh well.
It was fun watching all the slab climbers struggle with the overhang. This a really fun route and you can't be the approach from the campground.
Classic route... Would be a nice solo except for that last move around the corner to the face
very accessible route, next time I'll rap into my car. fun route.
A classic climb. Fun upper body traverse at the top.
Got to the overhang the first time and there was a huge blood spot where a guy hae split his melon the day before. Got freaked out and back down. Climbed it a month later when head was right again.
Well I hung on the 2nd pitch. Hopefully next time I'll lead it clean.
Climbed with Torger Johnson. First pitch was a lot of fun. Second pitch was mostly an upper body workout, but with a tricky exit move and then a last bit of friction climbing.
Really fun climb. Thanks for the great lead, Vlad!
