What a fun route! So much fun in fact that there was an entire institute established in Yucca Valley where all they do is sit around all day and talk about how great a route it is (and if you believe that...). But seriously, Mental Physics one of those routes you can climb again and again.
P1: Climb 100' of sweet jamming to a bolt anchor (5.7, 100 feet).
P2: Face climb up and slightly left past one bolt to the top (5.7 PG13, 80 feet).
You can rap Dazed and Confused in two easy raps with a single 60m rope.
Curious about the name? It comes from Mentalphysics, which is a spiritual retreat center located on the western edge of Joshua Tree, right off Highway 62.
