North Horror Rock (East Face), Joshua Tree NP


North Horror Rock is a large jumbled formation with routes scattered about it's various faces. Despite it's proximity to the parking area the majority of routes here seldom get done.

Some of the better routes here include the featured face of House Of The Homeless (5.9), Lippo Suction (5.10a) a short but fun face, the striking roof crack of Grit Roof (5.11a), the balancy arete of Ungawaa (5.11a) and Face Lift (5.11c) another tricky arete.

House Of The Homeless 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : North Horror Rock
Down and right from Grit Roof, the obvious roof crack visible from the parking area, is this short fun face. Climb steep, featured rock to a high first bolt and then move right and up the steep, frictiony face past two more bolts [hangers replaced 2/16/01 - ed.] to an anchor atop a sloping ramp. Rap or downclimb the ramp (to the climber's left) back to the base. A quick hit if in the area and a good warm-up route to do in between some of the nearby classics. One star out of five....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
