My climbing partner and I are considering going to Joshua Tree in February but we need more info before finalizing our decision. If anyone can post any URLs about Joshua Tree that would be great. Also, I have some general questions. What is the typical climb like out there? Type of rock, type of climbing - face, crack - sport, trad (mixed) etc. Ratings, how many pitches etc. From pictures I've seen it doesn't look like a lot of multi-pitch. Anyone have any first hand accounts/advice? We were thinking about hiring a guide for the first day to help get our bearings and then going it alone afterward. Any good local watering holes to hang out in at the end of the day? Thanks, John
