The Creature, Joshua Tree NP

Description 

This uniquely shaped formation is just off the trail on the way to the Astro Domes and, depending upon your inclinations, looks like a variety of creatures.

One route, the aptly named Monster Hole (5.10b), exists on the formation and involves some interesting moves that are rarely found on a route, even at Joshua Tree.


Getting There 

Hike the Wonderland Wash to a point about 200 yards past the Bankrupt Wall where the distinctive shape of the formation will be seen on the right (east) side of the trail.

Grab the hole, swing around onto the south face and then stuff a leg into the hole which enables you to clip a bolt above the hole. The crux (5.10b or thereabouts) is exiting the hole, which is quite awkward and somewhat bizarre, but once stood up a short bit of friction (5.9) leads to the spacious summit. This is a novelty route which is truly hard to rate as it ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
