New Joe's is a hillside/canyon a few miles away from the Left and Right forks with a whole bunch of quality boulders. Area 51 is the most accessable and most popular area, but there is a lot more up there just a short walk away. Be sure to scope out Nerve Damage and Pocket Rocket.
Please please please: don't camp up at New Joe's. It's on private property (I'm assuming it's either the Texaco subsidiary or the coal mine), so treat it with respect.
Follow Route 29 out of Orangeville and take a right on Route 57 North. Follow this for 3.3 miles and take a right on a dirt road, just after a huge rock pile on the right. Follow this dirt road up to a large parking lot with an oil rig in the middle. The trail up to the various areas starts at the back of the parking lot by the sign.

The Dirt road is now gated, and locked due to spraypainters.....Seek alt. approach....Not sure if it should be posted how to get there now.

bullshit - total bs. I really hope that the spraypainters werent climbers as well... thats all we need; one dickweeds ignorance and lack of respect could get the entire place shut down. the gate was locked last time i was down there as well...
and I agree. with gaar
the alt. approach shouldnt be posted in my opinion.

The dirt road is gated because of repeated vandalism of the gas derrick in the parking lot.
Just use the alternate approach, why should it not be published? You can clearly see the boulders from the road and can simply straightline your way from a pullout above the locked gate - it sucks though and will cause erosion. Just use the coal road.

We were in joe's valley this weekend and climbed in left and right fork, but never found new joes. We follwed the directions and found the dirt road which had a information board that said attention climbers. We drove up the dirt road for about 2 miles and it started to get really sketchy so we turned around. We saw the oil crane far off into the distance and estimated that it would take us an hour of driving on the dirt road at that rate. Is this correct? Approximately how long is the dirt road?
