Climb the classic crack straight up, moving slightly left near the top. Rap from anchors 20 feet right of the finish - 120 foot rap! or walk right and rap from anchors atop The Importance of Being Ernest with one rope - 75 feet.

This is a great climb at a wall with many fine crack routes. Everyone should do this climb at least once as it is a good introduction to crack climbing and Joshua Tree in general.


Near the left side of the wall is this hand/fist crack, which lies 5 feet left of Poodles are People Too  - a nice looking thin crack.


Gear to 3 inches
