For the past few years, we've gone to Red Rocks for New Year's. This time, however, MP had had enough of Red Rocks (which is too bad, because there's still a limitless number of climbs that I'd like to do there.) So, after Christmas in Montreal, we flew back to the Bay Area via Joshua Tree. It appeared that the entire population of Bay Area climbers was also at Joshua Tree.
