Due to a new Joshua Tree National Park regulation, vegetation of any kind may not be used for climbing anchors. Therefore the pinyon pine tree normally used as the belay/rappell anchor for Room To Shroom may no longer be used. A Special Use Permit was applied for and granted by the Park to replace the tree anchor, which is in wilderness with a bolted anchor. This is now in place about 12' left of the tree. It was placed with the thought of trying to benefit all 4 climbs that end at this anchor. It is equipped with rappel rings. Please do not add webbing to this anchor and please avoid using the tree for any climbing related purpose. The goal is to have an anchor that is low profile with the least visual impact. Nov 9, 2013
