A miniature version of Joshua Tree right at the border between San Diego and Imperial Counties. Also on the border of Mexico! Higher elevation keeps this area slightly cooler than close-by desert areas. A mix of sport and trad routes with an emphasis on sport. See Dave Kennedy's guide for more detailed information.
We will meet at the parking lot of Mission Valley Mall on the Macy's side by Bennigan's. We can car pool from there. Will need some 4WD vehicles to cart everyone out there.
