BETA PHOTO: Becky's Buttress (North Face), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Start left of Road Dogs and climb crispy rock past the first bolt to access the heavily featured face above. After clipping the 5th bolt start heading left for two bolts, cross Gravity Pirates (medium cam here) and then clip one more bolt before reaching the chains atop the highest point of the rock.

This climb offers some fun moves over steep, dark patina but the line wanders a bit and the lack of anything else vaguely similar nearby ensures it'll remain a seldom done obscurity. Two stars out of five.


Protection 

8 bolts, medium cam, bolted anchor/rap
