Description 

This lower elevation area can be a good choice when it's cold and windy in the main part of the Park. Although bouldering here has never been documented in any guidebook it's obvious that limited activity has been going on here for many years.

The rock tends to be of somewhat lesser quality in the Indian Cove Area but thankfully exceptions do exist in the campground area as well as further afield.

Strength of Steel V2 5+  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Anvil Boulder
SDS on a small rock at the base at opposing sidepulls and then work incut edges up and left moving onto the arete proper. Once standing work back right via a balancy high-step move and then mantle up onto a shelf below the top. A quick reach and easy mantle caps off the problem. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
