Description

A minimal approach and a dozen or more multi-pitch routes from 5.5 to 5.11c (most are 5.10a and under) combine to make this an immensely popular crag. West-facing and exposed which means morning shade, afternoon sun and open to the prevailing winds - not the best place to be when it's windy.

The Swift (5.7), Dappled Mare (5.8), Bird on a Wire (5.10a) are some of the more popular routes here.

Getting There

Approach from along the Lost Horse Road and follow a worn trail along the base of the wall. Plan on 5-15 minutes for the approach.

WARNING: My guidebook, "Classic Rock Climbs No. 1: Joshua Tree", has the topo lines for the routes superimposed about 20' left of where they should be on the photo. If you look carefully you can see where they should match the cracks. May 27, 2010
