highlights of the 2014-2015 josh season

we're super fortunate to be just a 2-ish hour drive away from joshua tree national park.  this past winter, we cruised up to the park regularly.  ticking lots of classic climbs, ticking lots of not-so-classic climbs, and not ticking some climbs that were too hard.  

here are some of the highlights. 

bnna scrambling down the boulders after a super fun ascent of moosedog tower 

climbing a super fun multi-pitch on the moosedog tower.  which tops out at a beautiful summit overlooking all of indian cove, and features a free-hanging rappel descent off the back side. 

 

 

 

 

bran climbing 27 pitches to celebrate his birthday in december.  a good size crew rallied all over the park climbing on the pitches and enjoying a beautiful winter's day in the park.  an epic day to be sure.
