I know nobody's crazy about Morbid Mound, but as a beginning climber this was a great place to get acquainted with Joshua Tree climbing, and to practice building anchors for toproping. Access up the NW side is easy, and there's a few cracks that work nicely with large stoppers or cams, and a nice big boulder to sling with a long piece of webbing, all right at the top of this route. It was a good confidence builder.
