Description 

This shady side of the rock hosts a number of routes from 5.6 - 5.12a with Jugular Vein (5.8), Freckle Face (5.11a) and Finger Bowl (5.12a) the best of the bunch here.


Getting There 

Hike northwest from the parking area aiming for the obvious largest formation in the area then circle around to the shady north side. The approach takes about 5 minutes from the car and is level with no boulder hopping.

New Toy 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Stirrup Rock - North Face
This climbs the obvious left-slanting crack system on the left edge of the shady north face of Stirrup Rock. Work your way down into the "pit" at the base and climb off a boulder into the crack. Jugular Vein (5.8) climbs this route and then cuts right to join a crack/dike system. Rap off bolts to climbers left to descend.This is another route that receives mention in the Winger's 60 Classics/Trad Guide to Joshua Tree. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
