Insider’s Guide to Joshua Tree with Mason Earle: Episode One
Posted on June 27, 2016

Eddie Bauer climber Mason Earle is at home in the cosmic climbing vortex of Joshua Tree. With more than 9,000 known and slightly sandbagged routes on its characteristic monzogranite rock, a storied Stonemaster legacy of climbing lore, and an environment that is a mosaic of miniature worlds, it’s a dry rock location that has drawn climbers on seasonal pilgrimages for decades. Earle migrated south last fall with climbers Ben Ditto and Katie Lambert to tackle aesthetic boulder problems, classic trad routes and some sporty sport climbing—but he also dove deep into the distinct culture of the area to understand what makes the place so original, so unusual and so compelling. In our third season of the Insider’s Guide, Mason Earle gives us the local tour.
