Joshua Tree Rock Break

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Joshua Tree Rock Break

Driving through Joshua Tree on the way to Tucson, we stopped at this pullout coming from the West Entrance, so I climbed around while my dad took pictures of the place.

Homemade polyester resin hold

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Homemade polyester resin hold

A crimper (ok, jug to some) that I free-formed using a clay mold, and a mixture of polyester resin and silica sand. No dye was added, the mix just came out this dull green color. The hold is quite nice, but differs from commercial holds in that it is heavier and less abrasively textured. I suspect that hold manufacturers use a different type of sand, and perhaps add a foaming agent to the resin to make a less dense, more highly textured hold. Of course this is just speculation. Experimenting with another homemade hold, I found that fracturing one of these resin/sand holds with a chisel makes for very natural-feeling crimper with a nice crystalline texture.

Seth on a roof route at the Pearly Gates

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Seth on a roof route at the Pearly Gates

The guidebook said "look for a finger pocket above the roof," it turned out to be a marble-sized depression and a balance mantle onto a slab.

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Diagram of upper ledges, Oyster Dome

This rough diagram of the upper ledges of the Oyster Dome is work in progress, and serves mainly to show the arrangement of the first set of routes near the top (i.e. "The 5.9+"...)

Meltdown, Oyster Dome

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Meltdown, Oyster Dome

This climb heads up the rooves in the middle of the Oyster Dome Wall. I have yet to witness a climb of it. There is a chain anchor about halfway up the wall (and according to comments here, there is a second pitch.)

The Bottom Crack of the

Average Rating = 2.25/5 The Bottom Crack of the

This lower crack is slightly overhanging. I like to shimmy up on a lieback and press my feet to the blank left wall. I suppose you could jam it if you wanted to. Note that the height of the main crack is only about 10 feet...

Sand In Your Crack

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Sand In Your Crack

A couple of stacked cracks make for a nice climb that feels more like two pitches of bouldering. Personally, I like to call it "Sand In Your Crack" because the upper crack usually has a lot of sand stuck to the surface.
