Description 

The Techulator is a worthy and sunny destination. There are many decent to good routes, enough to keep most anyone busy for a day or two. There may not be a single five star classic but there are many one- three star routes including Muffin Bandits (5.10b)face to crack, E.B. Bon Homme (5.9) a nice splitter, Alexander's Salamander (5.10d) finger crack and Tchalk is Cheap (5.10d).


Getting There 

Take the north Wonderland approach as though heading for Ellesmere Island and Gilligan's Island. Just after passing Ellesmere and Gilligan's Island on the trail cut due east around the northern base of Gilligan's. A group of formations are seen to the east including The Techulator, Pernicious Dome, El Dorado and the Skin Graft. The approach is ~2 miles and takes 45 minutes or so.

Upper dihedral of Muffin Bandits.

Muffin Bandits 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : The Techulator
The most striking route on the middle section of The Techulator is the hanging dihedral of Muffin Bandits. Apparently the first ascent party climbed directly into the dihedral via the thin crack which is the lower continuation of the crack which comes down out of the dihedral. This start may be a bit loose. Climb the dihedral via an interesting combination of finger jamming, stemming and face holds. It is also possible to climb into the dihedral from horizontals to a knob just below the left end...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

2/8/2010 -- Be prepared for loose, chossy, exfoliating rock. Bring extra bail webbing to back up anchors, both natural and fixed. Climbed 'The Spire' and 'Science Experiments You Can Eat' -- nice climbs if you can hang on while the rock crumbles around you. Note: The 2 bolts on Science Experiments are buttonheads, 1st one doesn't look so good.
