rrradam and ubotch went out to Joshua Tree last night for some great climbing. I'm sure rrradam will post the routes, I don't remember the names. This was my first time night climbing at it was perfect. Great temp and no lines. Thanks Adam for a good trip

I've done some night climbing at JT.
We went to Trash Can rock and started to solo the 5.3's by head lamp.
So Rich goes first Dave second and I go third. Rich tops out, Dave stall 1/2 up and needs to be rescued and I down climb, run to the truck and grab a rope, solo up another 5.3 and find where Dave is. Dave ended his soloing right then and there.
It sure was a fun night.

Ball Bearing in the dark! Impressive.

One of these days I'll get out there.
