Visual Nightmare 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Cap Rock - South Face
Located on the south face of Cap Rock, almost directly above the parking lot, this route follows the prominent left crack to the face above. A moderate thin crack at the start leads onto the upper face where two bolts protect somewhat delicate smears to the summit. Gear belay and walk off, or rap from the anchor atop Slim Pickings (65'). Fun climbing, easy access and a warm location make this a good choice on thiose cooler days....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
