|The Blob - North Face
This route is located about 50' left of The Bong (5.4) and starts off a wedged flake which forms the left side of the corridor this and other climbs are in. Chimney up the corridor and onto a wedged block to reach the first bolt which is a little high. Continue up the lumpy face above past two more bolts to the top. Gear belay about 40' back and then walk off down and left.
This forgotten route sat for many years with rusted 1/4" hangerless bolts, and more recently was rebolted to provide another fun, easy route for the area.
3 bolts (3/8"), gear to 3" needed for anchors
This climb is 15' above and left of Ballbury and is the left-most climb on the wall.

Wow. A bolted 5.4 in Joshua Tree National Park. That's cool.
