North Horror Rock (East Face), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

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.

Getting There 

Easily reached via a good trail from the paved parking area.

Start in a right-facing corner to approach the roof crack, plug in a piece or two under the roof and turn the lip where the crack quickly widens (this is where the big cam will come in handy). A large flake broke off several years ago and has bumped the grade up from it's previous rating (5.10c). A recommended route for the area that merits three stars out of five....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
