Description 

There are 5 climbs on the hillside above and to the right of the parking lot and the trail to 49 Palms Oasis.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, it's best to hike back along the road for a minute or two, and then head up the hillside to anything that looks big enough to have a roped rock climb on it....these are the climbs.

Climbing Season

For the Joshua Tree National Park area.
