Joshua Tree: Sport Climbs. Randy Vogel. Chockstone Press, Evergreen, Colorado, 1994. 72 pages. $10.00.

Comment: Over 250 so-called “clip-and-go” routes with topos. But isn’t the title an oxymoron? Read the fine print. On page 2, Vogel tells us that the routes “mostly” have fixed pro and may have long runouts at the top, for which Joshua Tree is famous. Some other routes clearly have severe free climbing before the first clip.
