Lead climbing in Joshua Tree National Park. This one is called "girdle crossing (5.10d). It is located in the "wonderland of rocks" area on the iconic formation named "freakdome brothers" – 3 with each other connected domes that stick out the beautiful desert landscape. Girdle crossing partially uses bolts of a more famous route called "I can't believe it's a girdle (5.10a). This one is unique in its appearance as it traverses for 3 long pitches along a "Dike" from left to right. Foot intense smearing along the rim of the roof is much characteristic for climbing in Joshua Tree. Season is almost over but this coming weekend we will still have great temps in the lower 70's. Get your climb on and see you out there.
