I guess he caught the bug bad.
    Took my 17 year old nephew out for his first taste of real rock awhile back. Now he is out climbing me (which isn't saying much at my age), and flashed the Grand this summer. Hasn't moved into a van yet, but he is eyeing my Sportsmobile. Probably going to end up a UC in Boulder for obvious reasons.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

Probably scared the shit out of them. I know if one of my daughters was living in a van and climbing (like I did) I would be worried sick. I guess I'm more aware of the dangers than my parents were. Ignorance is bliss.

    Sweet. I'll have to dig into the archives and look for some old J-tree photos and scan them. No cams though, they weren't invented yet...yeah, I'm old.

    Love to see those some time. Joshua Tree is such a cool place.

    A goofy video my buddy Matt put together after a full-on day of climbing in Eldo a few weeks back:
