Description

Indian Head is the large formation at the top of the approach gully.
It is the home of Joshua Tree's best aid climb.
There are also a couple free routes.
It's a bit of a hike, up 1,000 ft., but well worth it.

Getting There

Walk up the obvious gully below the formation.

Does anyone have any information about the bolted route to the left of Goof Proof Roof? The bolts look pretty new. Feb 15, 2012

Indian Head is very apparent from the road and just head off towards it and follow the left side of the gully. There is a trail in spots marked with cairns that makes the approach MUCH better. When in doubt, stay left and out of the gully bottom except for one section on a plateau once India Head is again visible. Feb 18, 2009
