Start the same as Monkey Gone to Heaven but stay low and make a powerful gaston move to link into the start of Pixie Dust and then finish up the fun moves of that problem. For more value continue right and then down along the lip to finish as per Monkey Gone to Heaven which may not make it any harder but will certainly add to the pump.

  • 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.

Cool problem if you want to see what a hard boulder feels like while being close to the ground. Kinda silly, kinda fun. I wouldn't drive out of my way to get to this thing but if you're in Indian Cove and have some time to kill give it a shot since its literally right next to the road. Dec 15, 2010

Since the line is more or less an eliminate, the holds used would be pretty specific. The newest guidebook shows this line continuing form the "bear hug" to make a large throw out right to the lip. There is also a small incut just under the lip. From there you finish up Monkeys Gone to Heaven. This method seems more in line with the v6 grade. Finishing up Pixie Dust would put it in the V4 range. Just my 2 cents. Jan 21, 2015

  • *I agree with "nds". If going according to the photo on this page, I would say it's closer to a v4.

If following the guidebook's line, then I would say it's much closer to the v6 grade.
I finished the v4(?) variation and am looking to complete the v6 line illustrated by the guidebook. The v4 variant is still a fun route to climb. Feb 20, 2015
