Kate's Bush 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Bush Dome
This route is on "Bush Dome" which is right and behind "Mel's Diner". Park at the turnout at "Roadside Rock", and walk a short distance west to the formations. "Kate's Bush" is on the right. You'll see a ledge about 25 feet above. Climb the crack system that takes you to the left side of the ledge. It is probably best to belay here. Then climb the obvious crack above. The lower crack is somewhat grainy and awkward(5.8), and the upper crack is a 5.7- joy....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Walk off to the South (climber's left from the East side). We thought this face might be sheltered from the West wind... but it wasn't.
