This little crag is approximantly 150 yards SE of the Rattlesnake Canyon parking and picnic area. Three routes exist. Two have been chopped. It probably has a different name, but this is the one that Tucker and I decided to call it during the FA of Bort.
Drive to the Rattlesnake Canyon picnic parking and take the line of least resistance.

This thing is destined for greatness! Fun, thug style moves on the prow of the ship. This thing has been called 'the easiest .12a tick in Josh' and 'the Big Moe of Indian Cove' ensuring the crowds will come to siege toprope project it for the coveted one two Joshua Tree tick.

yeah;...I do;...It's a 5.11a/b top rope that I couldn't do, Tucker almost did, and Brett Pinar and Tim Manefesto were able to do.....It's cool, but I'm not interested in bolting it up, because I can't do the climb!.....Top rope it, and if you can do it and want to bolt it for a lead climb, let me know;....I'll help you with that project if you wish.....It don't even have a name, I don't think....contact me if you want such a project.....

So who's been chopping these routes? :-( Thanks for the additional info, Todd. I need to get out there and try a couple of these on TR (although not likely able to do the 11a/b). Have to start working on 2,000 climbs now.
