Description 

This excellent boulder with it's smooth, solid rock is a nice change from the usual grit and grain commonly found in the area. Half a dozen quality problems are here, most V2 and under, with Strength of Steel (V2) being the standout.

Strength of Steel V2 5+  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Anvil Boulder
SDS on a small rock at the base at opposing sidepulls and then work incut edges up and left moving onto the arete proper. Once standing work back right via a balancy high-step move and then mantle up onto a shelf below the top. A quick reach and easy mantle caps off the problem. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
