Description

When viewed from Trash Can rock, this crag sits high on the hillside to the left of the White Cliffs of Dover. It is composed of rock similar to that of the White Cliffs ("whiter" and generally more polished than the rest of the park). It is very difficult to spot from the Lost Horse area, and the best angle to see it is from the road between Trash Can and Lost Horse. It is about 300 feet up the hillside and faces North-East.

The new Vogel guide (Joshua Tree West) has a topo of this crag but no photos. We were lured to it because of its shady location and numerous starred routes. The routes are OK, and a nice change of pace, but probably not worth a second visit.

Fixed rappel anchors are available on the left side of the crag (behind the big tree).

Getting There

Park at the end of the Lost Horse road (the last parking lot on the right before the section open to park service employees only). Hike North along the East edge of Super Creeps wall and then angle left across the desert until you hit an old road. Walk along this road for about 10 minutes and then head cross county to the base of the hillside. Hike up the hillside for about 10 minutes. The crag can easily be identified as a gray, slabby wall about 300 feet up.
