Joshua Tree Trip Report Part 2

Leslie on Overhang BypassThree more days of climbing and 20+ more routes on the collective list.  The weather has been colder and windier than earlier in the week.  Wednesday we were in Indian Cove, which is usually a little warmer.  Thursday we went back into the main park and were mostly in the Hidden Valley Campgrounds.  Today, Friday, we went to Playhouse and Hemmingway but by mid-afternon we had to stop when it started hailing.  Øyvind and Øyvind joined us Friday evening for dinner as they near the end of a two week climbing trip.
