Location: CA : Joshua Tree National Park : Indian Cove : Indian Cove Campground : Wonder Bluffs : Conniption (5.10b)

Comments: I had a very different experience on the climb. The pro is great down low, you can see all the placements before you start climbing. Bomber aliens. Maybe a slightly awkward to place, but hey, it's Josh 10b. If you make it past the 10b moves with a piece at your waist than the 5 feet of 5.8 afterward without pro shouldn't cause you any problems.

Awesome hand crack after the cave.

Comments: I've been climbing in Jtree for over a decade and this is now my new favorite route in the park. If this was near a road the lines would be 15 parties deep every weekend. Best climb in the park that I have done!

Comments: Getting off the ground consisted of standing on some super polised footholds. The first couple of moves were the crux for me. The rest had some nice square edges and sidepulls that you don't get often in jtree. The top were the climbing lets off makes you pay attention if only to make sure the rock is solid.

Comments: Got my feet on the horizontal above the bolt and had to make a couple of committing moves from there. That got my heart racing.

Comments: Didn't find the start as hard as some people on here. It was certainly sequential and started with a high step sidepull to get going. A couple of slick footholds gets you into a 5.8 crack with bomber gear. The second bolt was spicy! Almost barndoored off! A little runout beyond that but the climbing lets up.

Comments: Very nice "sport" route. Got my heart pumping in the middle when I pressud up on a small edge and almost peeled off backwards. The bolts are wierd down low and had to make a sketchy move across the face to clip the bolt.

Comments: The flake is solid as a hold. I cranked on it pretty good. I wouldn't be confortable with gear behind it though. Fun moves and harder than I expected getting past and on top of the flake on the face.

Comments: Only did the first pitch. Exited right to bolter anchor with slings. Decent climbing with good gear.

Comments: Great climb on good rock. The bottom was a little pumpy with a great rest. It looked hard to pull the roof from the ground but it was actually not bad with nice finger locks. Crux came right after a huge jug with a move of tips crack to get higher. Pumpy, sustained 5.9 climbing with a two move 10.b crux.

Comments: The crux for me was going from the vertical crack with the juggy sidepulls out left onto where the angle lets off. Felt much easier than 5.10b.

Comments: Tough to get started on this one. Some sidepulls out left with the obvious crack and a small foothold down low got me moving. Once I got to the circle sidepull out on the face it felt better. going from that circle to the crack above and out of the pod was strenuous. The top lets off but the pump from the bottom didn't go away.

Comments: Not a 5.7! Kind of ackward in the right leaning crack, more footholds on the face would have been nice. Started from the ground and it was definetly don't blow it territory.

Comments: Nice crack. My hands are large enough where this didn't feel like an offwidth. An unusual perfect crack for J tree.

Comments: Great route with a tough crux section. Good luck figuring out how to get to the third bolt! Great climbing to the top from there on great rock. Out of the way location makes for a nice quiet day away from the crowds.

Comments: Maybe not the best lead because the gear wasn't the greatest. Nice edge climbing that gets progressively harder until you get to the last four feet of climbing. Found an edge high and right to get into the better part of the crack up high. One move, but it felt hard.

Comments: What a great little climb in an off the beaten path location. Solid rock up high and kind of reminded me of the rock at White Cliffs of dover up high and red rocks down low. Crux move at third bolt is faith based. Can't really tell how it's going to go when you commit but it is all there.

Comments: I followed this one. Be solid climbing 5.10b to get to the first gear placement. Fun little step crossover above first bolt. Crux comes after the roof and last bolt. Two little smearing edges for your feet and thin finger tip holds. Moving off of those was tricky.

Comments: Great climb with great jams. One little tricky section but alot of small edges on the face next to the crack and solid jams make this one very comfortable.

Comments: Very short climbing sections. The crux section was fun. Standing on smears/rounded edges and repeating about six times until the angle lets up.

Comments: Fun climb. The start is height dependant. The rock is very slick here! Worth doing if in the area.

Comments: Didn't know that this wasn't the right start for ZZZZZ. Nice moves on nice rock and still get the crux of ZZZZZ. The face after the first natural pro was a little spicy. The crux was well protected at the third bolt.
