Description 

This low, oblong formation is located directly behind the Handicapped Parking at the paved parking lot for Cap Rock. While not especially appealing it does offer a number of friction/slab problems within staggering distance of your vehicle. Expect to get asked silly question from the tourists if bouldering here or at any of the other spots along the loop "nature trail".

Getting There 

Easily accessed from the paved parking area on the south end of Cap Rock.

Work your feet up steep smears to reach a high dish, run your feet up and and then mantel over the top. The crack to the right (Porkpie) should be considered off.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
