Looking for the next jam on

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Looking for the next jam on "Knob Job" 10b

Great climb with about 80 feet of hands to thin hands with a few merciful rests on giant knobs. This is me embarking on another section of thin hands enroute to the 10b layback section above.

Just after pulling the crux bulge on trad classic Jane 5.11a

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Just after pulling the crux bulge on trad classic Jane 5.11a

Area local D Gog showing off some early season skills cranking 5.11a on gear. Most lower off from the black sling anchor at the climber's waist, but when you have a reputation like he does the climbing goes for another 60 feet at 5.9...

Tarzan on Ice

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Tarzan on Ice

Recent warm weather in Norhteast allows for some toproping; still a little wet and cold for leading. Tarzan is one of the area classics because it has everything fist and hand jamming, stemming, face, and some OW if you want it.... Thanks goes to Bill "Sendmaster" Neacy for the great shot!

Dave G cruising the crux on Cro-Magnon 5.10d

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Dave G cruising the crux on Cro-Magnon 5.10d

Imagine being able to climb in the Northeast on Jan 21st with just a t-shirt on! That is just what happened today which allowed for climbing CroMag an oldschool 5.10 with a bouldery, way overhanging start and vicious handjams up high.

Working the crux on Absolute; area testpiece at 5.13b X

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Working the crux on Absolute; area testpiece at 5.13b X

Dave G TRing Absolute 5.13b X. The first crux move (5.13b) is to dyno off of a tiny crimper, which can be see in the upper right hand corner with a little chalk, to a sloping ledge; this first move is protected by a micronut and a RURP. The second crux (5.12 X) is another dyno from the previous sloper and cannot be protected from 30+ ft groundfall. I guess that is why you TR these things first...

Douggie Vegas?

Average Rating = 3.20/5 Douggie Vegas?

Leading the 5.7 variation of Johnny Vegas; this is the third pitch where the option is to either climb a 5.9 right facing corner (zero exposure) or step right onto a 5.7 arete (more exposure)... the choice was simple.

On a Geronimo belay Ledge....Viva Las Vegas!

Average Rating = 3.00/5 On a Geronimo belay Ledge....Viva Las Vegas!

The best part of this route is when rapping down you get to yell "Rope on Geronimoooooo!" and then the rope gets stuck in about 15 different cracks/features and the crying/rope cutting begins.

This topo should have been used as TP!

Average Rating = 3.50/5 This topo should have been used as TP!

Trying to figure out how the last pitch of The Swift goes; guidebook doesn't show the last 50 ft. So I end up leading a 5.9 variation that is a little wet... getting lost was the main theme of this Red Rocks/ Joshua Tree trip!

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Alot better to be on top of Lost Horse than at the bottom of Lost Horse

AT the top of The Swift a cool view of some of the far out regions of Joshua Tree. We were lucky to have the whole park to ourselves as it had just stopped raining.

Skateman

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Skateman "flexing" after the Eaglet topout.

The Eaglet offers east coast exposure only rivaled by the neighboring Whitney Gilman route on Cannon mountain. The tough approach was well worth it!

A Tuolumne Offwidth?

Average Rating = 3.00/5 A Tuolumne Offwidth?

Not sure if this is really one of the Guide Cracks on the South Flank of DAFF Dome even though it is sandwiched in between Guide Cracks 1 and 2. Instead it was an offwidth offering with many sharp Tuolumne crystals to tear your flesh just in case a wrong move was made.

Climbing a Golden Shield

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Climbing a Golden Shield

Last day in the Meadows, so take it easy and do a 1 pitch crack; although it looks like a 20 pitch route by the scenary in the background!
