The Flare 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Willit Pillar
A reasonably fun & sunny warm up on a freezing day. On the S. Face of the Willit Pillar there is a huge chimney system. Climbing up the face ont eh right side of this can be done to avoid the rather ill-protected and crunbling beginnign of said feature. It also avoids a rather pungent mess of wet bird crap if it's been recently raining...Climb up this and into a right-facing and right-leaning crack system onto a ledge. Belay here or continue (rope drag) up and right to a face with a few heads up...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The rappel off this formation (which is down the north face) is from two bolts set a ways back from the edge.
