Climbing in Joshua Tree - Part 2

Back in freezing Chicago! It was hard to leave the sun and the cliffs but it was a great trip. Here are some more pictures of climbing, Joshua Tree, and my great climbing friends!

I love this sign that you pass as you enter the park! Val on his first trad lead, Overhang Bypass! One of the many ravens I saw on this trip Bonnie on her first outdoor boulder problem, onsight! Aaron onsighting Illusion Dweller, a classic 5.10b trad route A beautiful sunset

The rest of these photos were taken by Aaron, our new associate photographer at Vrai! More to come on this announcement soon but as you can see, he will fit right in!

August easily climbing up Sail Away, 5.8 trad route in Hidden Valley Bonnie atop Sail Away that she led for her second trad lead ever, onsight! The descent Kadile on Sail Away, also a trad lead for him, also an onsight! Our last sunset of the trip, love this one!
