Description 

The South Face of Diarrhea Dome is a large face which despite it's size is mostly hidden from view by other formations in front of it. Home to a handful of somewhat obscure routes, which see far less traffic than the popular Grotto routes nearby, you'll likely have the place to yourself on routes like Truly Snooty Furniture (5.10a) a face to corner system, The Big Brown Eye (5.11a) cracks to face which pass a curiously shaped dark hole in the rock, Svapada (5.11b) a technical face and The Manly Dike (5.12a) which climbs an impressive dike system which crosses the face left to right.

Manly...isn't it....

The Manly Dike 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a PG13  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Diarrhea Dome - South Face
The big, obvious quartz dike. Gaining the dike is 5.12, but easily aided (A0) on less-than-inspiring bolts. The rest of the climb (5.11) is a continuous, excruciating test of balance. Just as mental for the follower as the leader. Top out on Big Brown Eye or rap....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Just a note on The Manly Dike: though well-bolted for Joshua Tree standards, a few of these bolts really are in need of replacement, particularly the first one. Granted, this adds an additional mental aspect to the route (which is pretty damn mental already!), but you could get pretty messed up if you pulled even one, and it's a long way out to hobble.
