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.

Getting There

Monkey Gone to Heaven V3 6A  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Pixie Boulder
SDS at the far left side of the North Face and work up and right along huecos and jugs to reach the lip which is traversed past where you'd think to mantle up (V1 if you do) and then contine right and slightly down along the sloping lip to finish with the last moves of Velouria (V0).* 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
