For a Joshua tree to begin life, a seed must generate, requiring perfectly timed rain in a place — Joshua Tree National Park — that yearly sees four inches pr precip. So while we climbers love the cloudless days, the Joshua trees dotting this surreal high-desert plateau might not. Here, Kurt Smith does a rain dance on the Southwest Aréte (runout 5.7) of Headstone Rock, Ryan Campground.
