These crags are located inside Joshua Tree Nat. Park, and are behind the hospital in Joshua Tree, off the main hwy. There are a number of climbs that have been done around this neighborhood. Here are a few of them.

Drive East past the town of Joshua Tree for a mile or two until you come to the hospital (on the right). A bit further down the road, you will see some crags off to the right. These are the Hospital Crags. Drive over to them, park, and hike over to them.
