Description Suggest change

The semi-enclosed area lies down and east from the landmark Human Sacrifice Boulder

The landmark Human Sacrifice Boulder, Joshua Tree NP and is home to a number of good problems well worth the short hike from the road.

Dripper Right (V0+), Dripper Left (V2), Puttyface (V4), Driblet (V4), Thin Crack (V10) and Pignose (V10) are some of the better problems here.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive 4.2 down the Geology Tour Road and park at a wide spot on either side of road near marker #6. Cross the road and head east along the south side of the huge rubble pile following a faint trail. Keep your eye out for the Human Sacrifice Boulder high atop the rubble pile as the Human Sacrifice Cove lies down and to the east of it somewhat hidden. Approach time is about 15 minutes from the car.
