I visited this formation with my son over the holiday, and I guess I had it confused with another formation. I attempted to scramble up the backside, getting above the point of no return after a fun chimney, then having to surmount a small boulder problem and just barely making the chains. There is Not a walk-off on this one. Just goes to show how you can easily get over your head in Joshua Tree. Jan 4, 2017
