BETA PHOTO: Shaggy Dog (aka Route 1056) (5.9), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Low-angled slab to start which gradually steepens higher to provide a less-than-vertical crux before the anchors which are below a steep headwall.

Named Route 1056 in the 1986 edition of the Joshua Tree Guide as the FA party was unknown at the time; that's been cleared up now.


Location 

Located on the right side of the west face and left of an arete.


Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")
