Description 

This area encompasses formations rising from the valley floor found on the right side of the Wonderland trail, past Ellsmere/Gilligan's Islands. Unlike the guide books, this area also includes the Land's End due to its proximity.

Getting There 

Hike in about about a mile, just past the large tailing Ellsmere formation.

Gandy 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Siberia
Gandy is the small obvious spire in front of and just below Dos Chichis. This climbs the left arete on the formation past six bolts and a 1" piece between the first and second bolt. A fun and worthwhile route to do if in the area. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
