The Vegas Joshua Tree Freak Show

Last climb of the trip. Spiderline at Joshua Tree.

Mad Lines along the Red Rocks Scenic Loop.

Just returned to The Rockies after thirty days down south. Man the desert is good for the soul. Left the car up north and flew to Vegas where I met up with one of the great American Bluegrass Musicians and Climbers Danny Uhlmann.

Danny getting freaky in Vegas...

...After seeing this in the window of every bookstore.

And back to the serious business of climbing rocks. Jasmin Caton made a special guest appearance fresh off a free ascent of The Moonlight Buttress. PROPS!

Bernie Mac crushing yet another piece of molten stone. I often feel bad for the rock after Bernie pulverizes it.

After trying The Gift a few too many times, I decided to transport the entire Gallery to Mars, thereby reducing the effects of gravity to about one third that of Earth.

Of course, one can only stay so long in Las Vegas before starting to feel dirty. So after a couple of weeks we split for the planet of Joshua Tree.
