Spring Break at Joshua Tree

Photos by Andrew Chasteen — A trip into the west is a welcomed treat for a trio of rock-hungry Midwesterners. Jeremy Collins, Jarod Sickler and I had resolved to brave the LA smog for a chance to crag in the clear skies and desert rocks of Joshua Tree National Park and the San Jacinto Mountains; AKA Tahquitz. An old, used guide was loaned our way and pointed us in the direction of such classics as Loose Lady, Hot Rocks, Left Ski Track, Clean and Jerk, Walk on the Wild Side, and The Vampire. Five days later, we tucked tail and headed back home with aching bodies and a couple of photos to share.
