Description 

With close to half a dozen problems and no approach the Picnic Boulder could be just the ticket for some casual bouldering if in the area. The rock is a little on the rough side here but if the weather is on the chilly side and your skin is up to it they can be quite fun. The easiest way off the boulder is down Ant Line.

Highlights here include the technical Whole Lotta Nothing (V2) and the exhilarating No Picnic (V3 R).

Remember to be courteous and ask before bouldering here if the campsite is occupied.

Getting There 

In campsite 15 which is just past the Short Wall after the two roads merge.

No Picnic V3 6A CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Picnic Boulder
This fun line climbs a slightly overhung face from lower right to upper left via incut edges, sidepulls, slopers and some cool moves. The only drawback is the poor landing which demands good spotting skills and several pads. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
