Apparently, some guy is walking around Joshua Tree picking fights with climbers, tried to beat someone up at Father Figure Sunday. Bald guy. Keep your eyes peeled for dirtbag on dirtbag violence.

I had to create a new account - wanted to defend myself.  This wasn't me, I honestly don't care for Jtree at all and I'm never there.  I'm curious to see how this turns out though, I do love me some internet drama!


I gotta say, bald guy with film equipment that can climb hard...there's no way though, that guy is pretty passive and mellow.  Can't be him.

Correct. All jokes until it wasn't. Dude was about 6', white, bald and had blue eyes that penetrated your soul. Possible anger management issues.

It really was an exceptional display of American hospitality that I shan’t forget for a little while. At least it was mostly just hilarious. Type 2 fun.

Anybody that can climb Father Figure yet can’t stomp the shit out of a random bald aggressor deserves to be paddled with their clip stick.

Harden up son...

Russ you are super wrong hard jt face climbing requires eating disorders and skinny legs not ideal for grappling or sitting down on your hooks and jabs.

Probably right GD.... now if that bald toughy showed up at the base of Throbbing Gristle and pulled that shit CSI would be hard pressed to even find the corpse.

Let me present a hypothetical situation:

Say you are wandering around Jtree and stumble upon a pile of (very poorly hidden) stashed gear near the base of a popular climb...well kinda just sitting there in the open. Let's just say hypothetically the stash contains a rope, a tripod and some old junk camcorder, and what the hell, throw in some draws and brush etc as well to complete the picture. You wonder: hell, this route is 10 minutes tops from the parking, them lazy donkey legs!

What would you do?
1) You leave the gear as it is. After all, not your shit.
2) You pack it all out and hand over to the ranger cuz ya know, jtree is a NP!
3) You make a funny video on the camcorder and then put everything back. (You are, after all, in a party of 3 and everyone is wearing a fuckin onesie.) Giggles all around; everyone wins.

Now, would your choice change if you knew the owner had a history for being a nutjob? What if you knew he was coming back for the redpoint (or more flail...) that very afternoon?! What if you knew he'd threaten you with physical harm and the good ol' "if I ever see your f***ing face again..." even after repeated apologies from all around trying to deescalate the situation. And if you knew he'd confront you at the edge of a boulder with a big dropoff behind....and grab you by the collars and try to tussle you around (because he's the big boss, obviously)? 

To really paint the picture complete, now imagine a little side kick who is about half the height of his master, eagerly fueling the fire with his "yeah!" "STFU!" & "Who the fuck do you think you are?!" "P***y...c**t...C**T!!!"

One really must also not leave out the nutjob picking up our stuff and stumping over them...

Lolz. I'll have a chuckle at climber's coffee about this one. 

P.S. we opted for option 3). They had no idea we already recorded some funny stuff...wish I could see their reaction when they find out.
