The Highwayman 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Corona/Dos Equis Wall
This relatively unheralded classic lies on the left side of the Dos Equis Wall and features thin tenuous climbing throughout most of it's entirety. At the top one can finish direct via a hand crack or cut left along a ramp with a fixed pin (unless it's missing). Originally done without any bolts, this is still a climb to grab your attention for the duration as it is thin, balancy and technical. Excellent moves on good stone make this a gem of the Indian Cove area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
