Description 

Technically part of the Stirrup Towers, this wedge-shaped formation sports two excellent bolted routes on it's east face. Paranoia (5.11b) ascends a steep face with edges while Manic Depression (5.11b) involves smearing on shallow depressions.

Getting There 

Head south from the parking area and circle around to the east (back) side of the Stirrup Towers. The approach takes 10 minutes or less.

Paranoia, 5.11b

Paranoia 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : The Mental Block
Climb steep, positive edges to anchors on a ledge. The first bolt and anchors are shared with Manic Depression (the route just to the left). A good route for the area with strikingly different climbing than that of the neighboring route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
