Streetcar Named Desire

FA: John Bachar
California > Joshua Tree NP > Joshua Tree Bou… > Barker Dam Boul… > Gunsmoke Area > Streetcar Boulder

Description

The obvious dihedral found several hundred feet East of Gunsmoke. Ascends a shallow dihedral of coarse Jtree monzogranite with increasingly difficult and technical stemming moves, up to a small roof cap that guards a juggy sloper above it. Some mantel to the left, some mantel to the right.

The run-n-jump is prolly V5

Protection

A pad is nice, hard dirt.

[Hide Comment] Brilliant climbing that will test your mettle in every way. So glad I stuck it out and sent after an embarrassing amount of attempts. Felt impossible years ago. Jan 7, 2018

[Hide Comment] Still the greatest dihedral I've ever done. No finger strength required. May 18, 2019
