Climb the overhanging arete on the boulder starting at a jug. Long move to decent holds, then go to the jugs and top out. Quite fun, atypical for Josh bouldering.

Have holds broken off since the original FA? Seemed easier than most V4's, especially in J-tree. Faint outlines of where holds could have flaked off are noticeable for the first couple of moves. Feb 14, 2007

The crux is a long move from a huge rail to a distant jug - taller climbers will find the problem easier - after which large edges and jugs lead to an easy finish. Definitely easier than other V4 problems in Joshua Tree. Nov 11, 2007

Downgraded to v2 in the current Joshua Tree Bouldering Guidebook. I felt its a solid v2 for taller people (5'10"+) and closer to v3 for the shorter folk. Jan 23, 2014

Agree it's harder than V2 for those shorter or with a smaller span. Very reachy opening move. Good spotters are quite important on this one given the angle and the rocky landing. Dec 29, 2014
Hopped on this one for this first time this past weekend. Was using the right, decent crimp, and felt it flex super hard. Marked an X on it, not sure what should've been done. We ended up doing the climb without it, but thought people should know it felt like it could go at any point. Apr 20, 2016
