Son Tran (they/them) on Upper Right Ski Track (5.3 trad) in Joshua Tree

Upper Right Ski Track (5.3), Joshua Tree National Park, California. “Joshua Tree is legendary for trad climbing and we wanted to start the day with a warm-up on one of the most iconic features of the park: Intersection Rock,” says Quan. “My friend Son Tran (they/them) led the route to highlight the gorgeous diagonal crack and the fact that despite this climb being a 5.3, it still looks rad. For me, even easier climbs have their appeal if you change your perspective.”
