BETA PHOTO: Ayatollah Boulder - west face, Joshua Tree.
This is a large boulder just southeast of the Sandy Wash Corridor
which has but a handful of problems from V-easy to V0; there are a few other problems on nearby boulders which range from V1 to V7 as well.

Approach as for the Sandy Wash Corridor
but continue a little further on the "nature trail before heading east to this boulder which is visible from the trail.
