Exploring the NorthEast Side of Joshua Tree National Park

We came across this beautiful boulder. The dike on it just looks amazing. Fabi is just fumbling around on the fun hanging start… Who knows if it goes or was previously sent? Certainly not a gimme.credit: our friend and partner Mike D. Check out @nakededgephotography Follow him for more badass climbing and mountain photography

Fun Scrambling Circuit Yesterday in Joshua Tree

This one is a beautiful corner climb on Belle campground. The weather was epic with strong winds, clouds, sun and rain… Just perfect for desert roaming before the storm rolls in. Now homeward bound San Diego

Great Day Out Climbing in Joshua Tree Yesterday

We hiked out to the North Wonderland to climb some more remote classics! It was gorgeous out and seemingly we were the only folks out there. Here, Fabi is climbing the amazing chimney start of “Gumshoe, 5.11a” Mike D.

Gorgeous Morning at Eagle Peak

When the first sunlight hit the top of the cliff. The clouds were hanging so down low in the valley making hills look like islands in the sea. We were grateful for some fine SoCal winter weather and of course superb desert granite. Always great to climb in the San Diego “backcountry”

Martin Linow Cruising the First Pitch of the “Great Red Book”

This 5.8 trad climb is super fun and located right above the sport climbing area: “second pullout”. The obvious giant dihedral is well visible from the road.

Hand Lining Down a Fixed Line in Red Rock canyon

The rainbow wall which thrones high above a massive alcove is accessed by this water gully… as seen in the picture, there is mostly a fixed line which facilitates the approach. The “Original Route” on Rainbow wall is one of the better climbs we have done lately… a must do for every 5.12 climber. @bloomstadt

El Cajon Mountain Catching San Diego’s Early Morning light

The main face has impressive multi pitch climbs up to 400+ feet. Most climbs are protected by bolts with very few “trad” lines. A +|- 1hr hike makes a great warm up approach. Great SoCal “winter” climbing

U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Training in Joshua Tree

These cadets had 5 long days to experience what it is like to lead climb, build anchors, belay their partner from the top and then rappel down. Here @hockeyt200 and Oscar on top of “Trashcan Rock”. Great week with awesome students who crushed it from beginning to end.
