Description: Joshua tree has been a training ground for many of the hard men of climbing since the 1950s. I learned trad in the summer of 2008 and came later that winter. I was quickly indocrinated to the challenging style of trad they have here and it has become my favorite winter climbing destination. I know it for its old school style of crack climbing, though it also has world class sport climbing mixed in as well. If I can comfortable climb a grade at Joshua Tree than I feel pretty good about tackling that grade at just about all other climbing areas.
