Description

The Looking Glass is a remote portion of the "ridgeline" that runs from The Shady Spot, through Ellsmere Island, Hidden Dome, etc. to the highpoint at Keys Point. The 80' northeast face cannot be seen from the road. As noted in Joshua Tree West, the southwestern exposure is "small, broken, and unimpressive".

Getting There

One way to get there is to follow the approach via Key's Point. From Key's Point, angle down and left to the base of the main northwest face, where Through the Looking Glass and Fracture Dynamics are located..

An alternate method would be to approach on the right side of the Outward Bound Slab. From the right side of the OBS head into the gully, on mostly easy boulder hopping. From the bottom of the ravine, head uphill. Aim to split the gap between the Greenhorn Dome and The Looking Glass. This approach will put you at the base of the Birthday Crew Arete with the main southwest face 150 yards below and to the left.
