#jtree

Man, Joshua Tree was everything I heard it could be.
It seemed harsh and unforgiving at first. We rolled in around midnight and couldn't find a campsite, anywhere. We crashed in an empty lot outside the park only to be told in the morning it wasn't appreciated in less kind terms. It was too hot, too windy, and the climbing was too hard.
Slowly things turned around. We snagged a nice campsite inside the park with really cool climbing right next door. Cute lizards were everywhere and the rocks and the trees started looking like other things from memory and imagination. The climbing became inspiring, unique, all-consuming. The night sky was pretty swell too.
When can I go back!?

"The world doesn't wait. Nothing is more important than getting an education. ✊🏼" Wendy Trejo on her first multi-pitch climb at Joshua Tree NP. She's visited Zion and now hopefully Yosemite is the next National Park that we, with the help of the collegians, can make possible in the near future. #theswift #educate #climbingschool #training #climbing #rockclimbing #neverstopexploring #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rei1440project #nevergiveup #outdoorwomen #girlswhoclimb #jtree #joshuatree

Sometimes it takes getting out of a city and into the thick of a cactus field to remind me of what's important. #worldperspectiveday #jeanjacketswag

I'm a quartz monzonite snob, spoiled with all that chossy granite that is highly friction and temperature dependent. We have a love-hate relastionship. That is all haha.

Could not agree more with Lynn Hill's belief that "For [her], climbing is a form of exploration that inspires me to confront my own inner nature within nature. It’s a means of experiencing a state of consciousness where there are no distractions or expectations. This intuitive state of being is what allows me to experience moments of true freedom and harmony." I feel completely in my element and at peace whenever I am spending time doing what I love, with people I love, in places I love. Joshua tree this past weekend was as magnificent as ever and never disappoints. Here's a picture from the weekend of me working on high noon (V5) trying a new sequence since I am not the best at dynos😝#joshuatree #jtree #goclimb #bouldering #girlswhoboulder #girlswhoclimb #outdoorclimbing

My multi-pitch buddies are coming home today! πŸ˜€ @emily_cote_4 and @francois_cote15 were lucky enough to spend an extra week and a half on their trip to check out JTree and a bit more of Red Rocks. So jealous! Can't wait to hear all about the stiff grades and good times. πŸ‘

Good freaking morning, Fear and Anxiety!!! Two days ago you guys woke me up with quite a show. You guys really didn't need to throw that big of a row. For a second you convinced me I was a failure, a fraud! It was so early in the morning I couldn't help but duck my head in the sheets with a crippling, pathetic nod.

But now I'm back in my groove and I have a message for you. Please remove your disdain from the front of my brain because I'm loving this morning, I'm admiring the terrain. I know we've only finished lap one of this run and you're already jumping the gun before we've really begun. But stop, halt, take a breath with me, please.

This first draft just guarantees that as far as I can foresee, we, you and me, will get to where we are meant to be.

Your cheery friend,
Me.
