Monday 12 October 2020

Date: Monday 12th October 2020 to Sunday 25th October 2020 (TBC)

Venue: Cochise Stronghold / Joshua Tree / NJC

Cochise Stronghold (Arizona) has one of the 10 best routes in North America (says Fred Becky), a 5.6 (HS) called What's My Line.

There are also 2 new guidebooks (West+East) describing the accesses and camping options. The campsite is at 5000ft and the best routes nearly 1000ft higher. The Forest Service campsite is small, but there is plenty of wild/free camping, especially on the west side. Joshua Tree (California) needs no introduction, the selective bouldering guide has 2000 problems, & the selective climbing 3000 routes. New Jack City is about 40 miles NW and provides sports climbing of all grades. Most of the climbing is at 4000ft. If these are too hot then Big Bear (Holcombe Pinnacles) is also about 40 miles NW of Joshua Tree, the lake is at 6700ft and the climbing at 1000ft higher. Unlimited climbing (mostly sport) at all grades. In winter you can look down on the ski-runs across the lake!
