Joshua Tree never disappoints with its unique style of climbing. Here Max on a climb that looks much harder than it actually is. We hiked all the way into Johnson's canyon to get on this gem. It was Max's first time climbing in the park and he was quite surprised by the funky moves he busted out and the stiff ratings. We kept hearing "this is the hardest 5.7 (and you could insert any rating here) I have ever done! Yes… Joshua Tree is no ego booster!! After a few pitches, he got the hang of it and suddenly palming, stemming and other odd moves were busted out with more ease. Good job Max!
