BETA PHOTO: Hidden Crack (V3), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

SDS in a mini right-facing corner with tight fingers and punch it up over the bulge where the crack opens to hands and gradually better feet. Descend by easy downclimbing off the backside then circle back around to the base.

A standing start can be done at a much easier grade (V0+ or so); however you climb this the rock is a little rough so tape is not a bad idea,.

  • Incorrectly called Shark's Fin Crack in the latest edition of the JT Bouldering Guide.


Location 

The obvious north-facing crack in the alcove.


Protection 

Pad, spotter
