Description

This area tends to get early afternoon sun and stays in the sun until late in the evening. One of the least popular areas in Joe's valley and hosts some mega-classics. I have asked around and it doesn't seem to be the trend in Joe's Valley development to name "areas" as the boulders tend to be a bit spread out from one another (at least at the newer areas).

Getting There

Halfway between the 8 Mile area and the Mine Cart. Upon passing the Mine Cart (on your left) take the next right hand turn out and park there. Go back (toward the Mine Cart) and a Joe's trail (i.e. crappy trail) will lead upward towards the boulders. Take this trail until it intersects with another trail that parallels the road. There are three main ares that all branch off from this point. The Black Dahlia rests uphill and right in a cluster of boulders and trees. The Obelisk should be mostly visible (you can see it from the road) and is up and right from here. Groundation rests in the wash behind the Obelisk.

At the time of this writing the project has not been done. Jamie Emerson has claimed to do 2 of the three moves (including the crux). I believe he estimates it at V13/14 or so. He had a post on the project at his site B3bouldering.com May 8, 2010
