Description 

This rock only has a couple routes on it, but it does sport the ultra-classic Coarse And Buggy (5.11a/b) as well as the easily TR-able face climb The Sowsuckle (5.12a/b). The rock mainly faces east and north so it's ideal for warm weather days, though we were able to climb here on a comfy day in early January. Fun for an afternoon of climbing and it's near Hemingway Buttress and Dairy Queen Wall.


Getting There 

Drive about 3/4 of a mile south on Quail Springs Road from the junction with Lost Horse Ranger Station Road to a small parking area on the shoulder. The stunning dihedral of Coarse and Buggy is easily visible from the road.

Coarse and Buggy 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Dihedral Rock
This route is among many people's favorite climbs at J-Tree and I would have to say that it's the coolest single pitch I've done at the Tree. Locate the stunning left-facing dihedral which faces the road...you can't miss it. A toprope can be set up top without too much trouble, which means the climb is likely to be swarmed by a TR-ing mob from time to time. The climb can either be started by climbing easily in from the boulder on the left or via a direct start (5.10). The crux (5.11-) comes ri...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
