Description 

This is a classic arĂȘte climb on fantastic rock. Well protected, excellent position, and sustained moves. This route alone is worth the hike. It gets morning sun.

The quality, shape, and position of this rock almost beg you to climb it. Each move is almost exactly as hard as the other, with the last being the hardest. As AJ said, worth the 30 minute walk by itself.

While in the area, also have a go at "Walk of Fame" (5.10c).

Great rock! One of the cleanest in the park. Nice moves, nicely protected, etc... Agreed that the hike is worth it. Two other great climbs to the right on the same rock are also well worth it. Easy hike by the way.

Well worth the long walk, this route features a laser cut arete on excellent dark grey stone. The crux comes just past the first bolt but the moves stay continuous all the way to the anchors. Three stars out of five (more if it was longer).

This is two-star climb (one for rock quality and one for interesting moves), but I only give it one to offset the previous four-star rating. I DID NOT think it was worth the hike, its just too short! There are better ways to spend your time in Joshua Tree.
