Business Trip (5.4), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Begins in a chimney. At the top of this, make a right turn up some slabs to an easy crack pulling through a "roof".

Location 

Just a little to the left of Thin Red Line.

To get down, continue up and over the top and descend the back side as for The Eye.

Protection 

Very little gear. Maybe towards the bottom entering the chimney and at the very top. If you choose to rope up, bring LONG slings due to the sharp turn you take on the route past the chimney.

Great beginner solo route. "crux" is getting off the ground, then basically scramble to the top. Not nearly as exposed as The Eye.
