My buddies and I will be making a couple day trips to j-tree out of LA, and want to know where we'll have the most fun. We'll probably be bouldering mostly as we don't have any trad gear. We were figuring just go to HVCG, but it sounds busy (especially since it will be spring break), and we have no need to camp.

If you want to meet up with us, we'll be there like mon, tue, and wed the 12th, 13th, 14th. Otherwise, any verbal advice would be awesome.

thanks
~eric

www.climbingjtree.com has a "classic routes" section. A very good place to start. You might want to throw in your abiblity level as it would be very difficult to give advice not knowing your that info. One classic youmust do is Southwest Corner of Headstone Rock. About 200 yards east of Ryan Campground.

If you're going to boulder, you might check out the asteroid belt, just east of HVCG behind the cyclops. THere's several good problems out there, you probably don't need a guide.

You can also follow the signs from Barker Dam out to the Gunsmoke problem and wait in line to try that one.
