Joshua Tree Xtreme 2002
A club trip to Joshua tree, 10/27/2002. See also the Feb 2002 trip.
This is copied from the old website, so few details are known.
Mark leading Head over Heals (5.10a) and Eric leading some 5.9 crack on the East Face of the Hemingway Buttress
The East Face of the Hemingway Buttress and Javier "sportrading" Head over Heals
Now here's the good stuff: The Head over Heals ROOF. Little clinic for Paul Wiggins to study in his bed
First, you let go your feet and take an extreme position (like Javier). Then you do a one-arm pullup and chalkup as demonstrated by Dan.
Then you contract your abs to move your legs up while breathing heavily and saying, "This is technical!". A heel hook puts you in a rest position where you can chalkup again, as shown by Mark.
You get ready for the reachy move by bringing forth the French attitude in you and pull down hard to get over the roof
Dan using his karate and caving moves in "Dung Fu"!
