Description [Suggest Change]

Above Indian Wells Canyon is this collection of odd formations characterized mainly by chossy rock, but displaying occasional rock of a higher quality, generally about as good as the average rock found at Indian Cove in Joshua Tree.

This desert environment at approximately 4,000 feet is best to climb in from fall to spring. We explored this small area somewhat extensively looking for evidence of route development and found nothing. The rock quality is such that it's not too surprising, but there appear to be some worthwhile routes, including one that we put up on one of the most striking faces of the most immediately attractive formations.

With decent rock at Heller Rocks, it's no surprise that this area escaped development. Now that wilderness restrictions have basically close Heller Rocks to casual cragging, this might one day be a reasonable stop on your way through the area.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Follow the general directions for Indian Wells Canyon.

Instead of continuing down the dirt road to the Owens Peak Trail parking area you will turn right shortly after crossing the LA Aqueduct and start climbing the north side of the canyon below the Five Fingers. The road is sort of steep and soft, so four wheel drive is nice, but maybe not necessary. Continue up this road to a parking area that is at this lat/long: 35.68459, -117.88994

Count Chossula's south face is right in front of you when you park.
