When we sent Jeremiah Watt to Joshua Tree with the Eddie Bauer team this past spring, it was to capture epic images of desert climbing. That he did. So as the desert climbing season ramps up again, we asked Eddie Bauer climber Mason Earle—who has been crushing it this summer in locations from Yosemite and Squamish to the Wind River Range—to pick a gallery of his favorites from that time in the desert. Enjoy.
