It’s a long voyage from Australia to Joshua Tree National Park, California, but when one of the planet’s top climbing photographers—the Aussie Simon Carter—tells you he wants to point his glass at the world’s best trad-cragging area you don’t say no. On the cover of Climbing’s April Issue – No. 265 – and in our High-Desert Spring Gallery (p.48), find Joshua Tree revisited and reimagined—sun, cactus, cracks, spires, and boulders—4,000 routes for the taking. Shown here: Joshua Tree’s one and only Figures on a Landscape (5.10b), North Astro Dome, Wonderland of Rocks.
