Description 

Visible as a slabby and not especially appealing boulder from most sides, this medium sized boulder actually has a few decent problems on it that are worth doing if in the area. An easy downclimb exists down the short east face of the boulder.

The surprisingly fun and athletic Seven Grain Arete (V1) and the technical slab of Whole Grain Goodness (V2) are the highlights here.

Getting There 

Located just southeast of the large Hoi Polloi Boulder with the Seven Grain problem facing towards Multi Grain (V1) on the south face of the Hoi Polloi Boulder.

Seven Grain Arete V1 5  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Seven Grain Boulder
This fun problem climbs the slanting and overhung northwest arete of the boulder and is much better than appearances might first suggest. Sit start at an incut rail, get your feet set and then surf the arete left - sometimes using the lip of the arete and other times using holds further back - to a cool sequence below the lip and then polish it off with a classic mantle/rockover move onto the top. Fun and athletic in nature, this is another great moderate problem of the area. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
