5th Annual JTree Tweetup is Coming Up! (Thank Goodness the Parks Re-Opened)

I can hardly believe it, it’s going to be the FIFTH Annual JTree Tweetup this year! While the Government shutdown made me miss out on a 7 day trip in Yosemite, I’m so glad we didn’t have to have anyone cancel plane tickets for the JtreeTweetup! The official dates are November 8-11, 2013 but we […]

Trip Report – 4th Annual Jtree Tweetup, Joshua Tree National Park

The Fourth Annual Jtree Tweetup, which officially took place from November 9-11, 2012 (though many came early and some stayed later) was a lot of fun as usual. This year it was cold and windy, though thankfully not as windy as the forecasts had originally said it would be (one day had predicted gusts of […]

Trip Report – 2nd Annual Jtree Tweetup, Joshua Tree National Park

Last year I helped organize something I optimistically called the 1st Annual Jtree Tweetup. Climbers from all over the US and Canada came, we had a great time and I’d call it a success. But to really make it earn its name we had to have a 2nd Annual Jtree Tweetup right? Right. The plan […]

Red Rocks, Nevada #RRtweetup Climbing Trip April 2010

Sometimes the weather forecast lies. I looked at my calendar and the bright red rectangular banner that said “Red Rocks Tweetup Trip” it had changed a bit, gotten longer, gotten shorter, had names added, removed and added again; but it had been there for a while. I looked at the weather report. Rain it said. […]

#JTreeTweetup – Joshua Tree Tweetup 2009

Oh boy. How am I gonna start this? Well first I’ll say, “We pulled it off!” We got 20+ folks in Joshua Tree National Park, many who had never been to it before and we didn’t lose, injure or maim anyone. Some may have left with an indelible impression but that can’t be helped. Setting […]

High Sierra / Tuolumne Trip ‘09 – Part 2

Day 3 &4 – 7/12, 7/13 “Whoa! Hey!” It was around 4 in the morning but I knew what that yelling meant — a bear. That’s how Sunday started. With a mighty shake of the truck and a bang of a box (the bear was scared off quickly and didn’t get anything luckily) at a […]

Climber Pickup Contest Winners

Well we wrapped up the contest portion of the #climberpickup. Judges weighed in with their top three choices (and some listed Honorable Mentions as well).

We all thought it was very hard to choose so each judge chose her own top three picks and […]
