Joshua Tree Trip Report

The first CCC climbing trip of the 2012 season has started out great.  Ann, Lea, Tim and I arrived Saturday night and got three great days of climbing in the main park.  The days are warm with a light breeze to keep it from getting too hot.

During the first three days, our collective route list includes:

  • Chapter 7 5.6
  • Creditor's Claim 5.7
  • Mental Physics 5.7+ ****
  • Last Angry Arab 5.6
  • Willard 5.7 *
  • Stemski 5.6 **
  • Jeeper's Creepers 5.9+
  • Indian Garden 5.6
  • Mother Board Breakdown 5.10c ***
  • Diagnistic 5.6 ***
  • Men with Cow's Heads 5.5
  • Wet Pigeon 5.8 *
  • The Labyrinth 5.7
  • Aiguille de Joshua Tree 5.6 X ***
  • Butterfingers Make Me Horny 5.8
  • Conservative Policies 5.8
  • No Calculators Allowed 5.10a

On Wednesday we are joined by Chris, Paul and Leslie.  A weather system moved in, the temp droped and the wind picked up with gusts up to 35 mph, so the group headed to Indian Cove.
