New Toy 5.6 4c 14 V 12 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
