Big Hunk (Northeast Face)

California > Joshua Tree NP > Central Joshua… > Echo Rock Area > Big Hunk


Visible best from the vicinity of the Gunsmoke Wall but otherwise mostly hidden from view is the huge but mostly broken northeast face of Big Hunk.

Getting There

Approach as for Little Hunk - NE Face (Right) but continue east until able to cut back southeast along the base or approach as for Little Hunk's SW Face Right (Monkey Business Wall) and then scramble over rough terrain to the base. The approach takes 20-25 minutes from the closest parking area.
