Dear fellow climbers,
with my gf are making an road trip trough CA and are looking for some climbing. We are from Europe, Slovenia and are both experienced climbers.

We'll pass Palm springs at the end of March(26.-27.) If there's somebody willing to show us the area we'd be very pleased. We can share experiences and beer:)
We're fine with trad, sport or bouldering. We are limited with equipment, though.

take care,
Luka

Hi, Luca!

My name is Erin and I'm going to J Tree for a roadtrip from March 26-March 29. Unfortunately, I don't have gear to provide, but I am planning to meet up with some cool people there and meet some new friends. I have been climbing for two years, and am just getting into leading. If anything you, me and your girlfriend could join forces and seek out other cool, exciting people to climb with at J Tree! Let me know.

Cheers!
Erin

Hi Erin,
well, the time seems perfect! We plan to go from LA at 27th or 28th. We're climbing 10yrs or so, so lead should be no problem. If we won't find any rope, we can still go bouldering:)

Do you know if we need some kind of pass for the area?
Is it wise to buy state park pass in advance?

Thanks,
Luka

Luka,

If you make it to Joshua Tree you shouldn't have a hard time finding partners. I'll be there all spring climbing and many others will too. To enter Joshua Tree National Park you'll need a park pass (valid for 7 days) that you can buy at the park entrance. I think its $10.

If you swing by the main camping areas like Hidden Valley Campground, and chat with people you'll meet all the partners you could want.

I should be in the area and am always looking for new partners. My girlfriend and I have plenty of gear, but no crashpads

entry to Joshua Tree is now $15, and an annual pass to all the national parks (and lots of other federal lands) is $80. nps.gov/jotr/planyourvisit/fee...

I will be in either Joshua Tree or Red Rocks from March 26-April 2, still trying to decide exactly where to spend that week.

Sounds awesome, Luca. You can just get a pass upon entering the park. A day pass is $15 and lasts a week, and a year pass is $30, I believe. If you and girlfriend plan on frequenting J Tree, buying the year pass would be your best move. I'll get in touch with you more as the weeks leading up to the trip progress!

Just after the opening crux on P2.
I would keep an eye on the weather at Tahquitz. Despite common belief, the south side is still climbable this time of year. Highs are around 15-20 deg C this coming weekend.

Dear All,
We are back home and I feel obligated to write a short sum up. We weren't able to meet with Todd - got his wife on the phone, but then we didn't have reception in park itself - maybe next time.

Without proper gear all we did was bouldering. But what boulders there are! Excellent rock, great surroundings, incredible rock formations. And friendly people. Everybody was willing to rent a crash pad.
We did couple of harder ones and couple of easy, like the Womb.

We were there just in time of spring break and all the camps were full. Still it's very easy to sleep at BSC trails, following the regulations.

We continued to GC, Zyon, Bryce, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite. A nice and recommendable trip.

Take care and thanks again for useful information,
Luka
