Pretty funny banter from both sides....


So this is a pissing contest over whether Jtree is 'hot or not'?

"Josh is soooo 80's!"Crazy


Could someone clue me into what's cool so I can jump on the bandwagon?

cause this is what's all about right?

Climbsomething? Jay?

where are the cool kids climbing?

I haven't really been reading the rags so I guess I'm out of the loop....

bwahahahahahahahaha

Now that's just a trick question. I'm a totally hopeless geek.

I suspect the really super kewl kids are tugging on some limestone, though.

Notice how there's no limestone in JTree Wink

Actually Hill you are smarter than you think... At this time of the year, the cool kids are climbing at the Surf Bowl or Tonsai, both limestone. Locally, we are climbing at one of the three nearby steep choss piles, in any case definately NOT Josh!

I've noticed that over a certain age, the image-conscious do well to hang with the has-beens as opposed to the kewl kids.

It's like that line from Dazed and Confused..."what I love about [the kewl climbers] is, I keep getting older, but they just stay the same age."

You heard it here first, Jack'n'Jay- I guess you're not old!!

Well... hmm...

Eh, anybody who's seen Jack's hair or Jay's Croakies and sweatpants knows they just don't give a fuck anyway Laugh

You're so stylish guys, that's a good look guys, yup yup!

"Well Jay, at least socal "likes you and has a ton of respect for you", he told me I was a "washed up never-will-be".

HAHAHAHA!!!"

Don't worry about it Jack, just poking fun. It's been a while, but we met up a couple times when Raliegh and I were climbing out in your "hood". I'm guessing that it must have been at least 5 or 6 years ago. You even gave me the grand tour.

BTW, I really felt bad for you when I read something over on Todd's site about New Years. For all the time you have spent out there putting up an area we can all enjoy, that must have been a bit of blow.

Hats off to you, you bolt clipping sport tardLaugh

Climb you are rigth! Life has taken me from J-Tree low-angle-wasteland-for-hard-men-only to some viciously overhanging 5.9 jug after jug limestone...

It looks cooler on the overhang so... I guess this is what cool kids are climbing... just to look like Andrada and Sharma on Chilam Balam...

I don't have a guide handy, nor have I been a regular local for many years, so I'm sure I'll miss a few. That being said, I would certainly think these routes, that I have been to, would be on the list.

Condor
Beaver
Bikini Whale
Bloodline
Black Diamond
Equinox
Acid Crack
Baby Apes
Skin Head Arete
South of Heaven
Iconoclast
Father Figure
Desert Shield
Powers That Be
Ocean of Doubt

For the truely talented climbers I would add these routes, that I haven't tried, to the list.

NWO
Chain of Addiction
Hydra
La Machine

I suspect, though I haven't tried, these routes might also make the list.

Eagle Talons
Tomahawk
Little Big Horn
Ionic Strength

Add a handful of eaisier classics, even if just for historical purposes, that I have been to.

Jug Line
Vector
Spiderline
Morongo Man
Wangerbanger
29 Palms
Hidden Arch

Add half a dozen of your own picks to cover routes I'm too stoned or stupid to remember, or don't know about. And there you have it, a good tick list of just under 40 routes, that are "worth it" for the decent climber to go to. I think the list represents the range of styles of climbing and length of routes avalible at Josh.

SNIP a good list

Did I say "decent"? I meant a docent climber ( YIKES )....

And now we are passing Double Cross a known killer of hapless gym climbers...

Has any the above even had a second ascent?

I've done Little Big Horn, its quite good. Not sure if it belongs in the top 40 ( sorry Kris ).

I'll hang out on these for a while longer.

Thanks for the list, interesting to see what intrigues you.

I swear one of these days I'll go sport climbing!

You know the only thing that sucks about J-Tree IS THE FUCKING GAWDAMN SHITTY PARK SERVICE AND ALL THEIR RULES, FEES, AND LACK OF EFFORT!

Gosh. I sure do hate to wake up to a gun-toting fat bitch ass park ranger eying me suspiciously. If they weren't so busy eyeing my ass they might notice THE ABUNDANCE OF TRASH AND LOCAL PARTYING SHIT KIDS THAT ACTUALLY NEED THEIR ATTENTION!

Use your pay raises to fucking WORK assholes.

By the way, the climbing is awesome. The routes are awesome and the history is even awesomer...

Perfect. I have been waiting for this.

East Coast vs. West Coast.

Climbers and rappers together at last.

I vote Curt as our Suge Night.

Nah. 2Pac, maybe. Biggie was East Coast. Pac and Suge are both West.

Jay as Pac would make him a dead legend, versus a fat gangsta in red. I'm not sure which one he'd rather be...
