Description

Labor Dome is a trad rock with over half a dozen routes. The rock's western aspect makes it a good morning destination in the heat, or mid-day to afternoon destination in the cold.

To descend, walk some distance to the south, behind and over a boulder or two, and then down the west to some large boulders, then back north to the base of the climbs.

Getting There

The approach is described coming from the main road by skirting around the Cereal Cliff:

Park in same pullout as for Watanabe Wall and Hot Tub. Walk about 75 yards down the road toward Hemmingway (west), then follow a path and obvious wash around the left edge of the Cereal Cliff. Once through some flat, rocky areas, go up and right about 75 yards to the cliff.

The anchor was a completely unnecessary retro bolt job and deserved the chop.

There's a perfectly satisfactory crack within three feet. Nov 25, 2011

The Joshua Tree West guidebook indicates that there is a 2-bolt anchor at the top of Working Overtime. This anchor is no longer there, so be prepared to build your own anchor. The walk off to the climber's right isn't bad at all. Nov 25, 2011
