DescriptionThis is the obvious crack that separates the face with Double Trouble (5.10a) and Fluff Boy (5.8).
Unprotected, but easy, climbing leads up to the base of the crack proper which affords good jams and protection. The crux comes about two-thirds height, just past the point where Fluff Boy cuts off right, and involves negotiating a short offwidth section (face left). After the crux the angle kicks back and it's a breeze to the top.
The descent is tricky to do without the difficulty exceeding that of the route itself (welcome to Joshua Tree!), but the easiest way is to head right and then tunnel through until you come out above the Right V Crack. Make a leap (rope up if needed) across to the top of Linda's Face, where easy slabs lead the rest of the way to the ground.
A decent route for the beginner leader that features a somewhat involved downclimb - perfect training for the many complex descents found at Joshua Tree. One star out of five.
