Start right of Turnbuckle and lieback up the curving arete to a rounded mantle finish - probably about 5.9 in difficulty. An easy downclimb is found on the backside (East face) of the boulder.

  • This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area.


15' right of Turnbuckle.
