BETA PHOTO: Dissolution Rock, Joshua Tree NP



This is a nondescript rock with a couple of good routes about a 5-minute walk from the parking area. If the routes were longer they would be classics, but as it is this is a good rock to burn an hour or two on.

Getting There 

Walk west from the parking area along a wash. About halfway between the parking lot and the obvious Indian Wave boulders, look up about 100 feet above the bottom of the wash. Dissolution Rock is a brown wall with two cracks right of a fairly sharp arĂȘte. The crack on the left is a prominent hand crack.
