Featured Route For Varnished Wall Boulders
Rock Climbing Photo: At the lip of Shadow Zone (V0), Joshua Tree NP

Shadow Zone V0 4 PG13  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Anvil Boulder
Start below the lip on some good flakes and then crank up and over the lip into an easy but scary mantle. Best not to fall on this one. Descend by jumping back across to a rock. * 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
