Hello fellow climbers,
Let's get our climb on at JTree again!
The climbing trip is for intermediate and above craggers who can set up/take down anchors safely, lead and/or or follow trad. Must have some gear (or a nut tool, PAS, etc as a follower)
What do you need?
*Rack/gear (cams, nuts, webbing, PAS, helmet, shoes, harness, cordelette, etc)
*Food & water. (Yucca, a town nearby has food and such)
*Car or airplane (drive is like 8 to 10 hours from bay area. flights into palm springs can range from 200 to 300 RT. Palm Springs is 40 mins form Jtree. Carpools are encouraged
*Camping gear (tent, sleeping bag or biivy, stove, utencils, headlamp, folding chairs,wood we can get at local store etc)
Jtree is good for climbing in December but it gets cold at night so bring layers
