Description 

A large east-facing formation back behind the Freak Brothers Dome. Home to a small handful of routes, most notably the diverse Early Bird, as well as a couple of face climbs.

There’s usually a rap station at the top of Early Bird consisting of a few slings with knot chocks (requires 2 ropes). If that’s not your cup of tea there’s a fairly easy, albeit a bit long, downclimb off the back of the formation - scramble up to the summit and descend in a gulley.

Getting There 

If approaching from the entrance to Wonderlands, walk past the Freak Bros Dome, then cut right up a wide valley. A trail will eventually cut right and a scramble will get you up to the main formation. Several poor quality trails precede the proper trail, if you have to do a bunch of bush wacking you’ve chosen one of these. If you run into a large, well, obelisk, in the middle of the pathway that’s The Red Obelisk and you’ve gone too far.

Early Bird follows the obvious crack/layback and onto the headwall above.

Early Bird 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Fat Freddie’s Cat
This awesome route starts out of a cave in an arching thin hands to hands crack. At the end of this crack step left onto a sloping ledge and belay. The second pitch either goes straight up to a short overhanging crack or, better yet, step to the right and climb beautiful gray varnished face protected by stoppers up to the steep crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
