Quality slab climbing on smears and patina edges lead up to and over an overlap and some stemming before reaching the anchors. A little crispy in spots but generally quite solid.

The right-most of three bolted routes above the left side of the ledge at the base.

Protection

6 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Remembering Marina )

Anchor upgraded on 11/2014

Not a bad route but not on par with the quality of Double Dip or Stichter Quits. But a good experience for people new to Joshua Tree and used to doing clips ups. The crux over the lip is a bit reach dependent. Nov 29, 2013

I rate this route based on whether you use the overhanging slab to the right near the crux. Using it to balance makes the climb much easier so if you can manage to avoid it, go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back for climbing a 5.7+ Mar 31, 2012

Nice route, worth the warm up to get a feel for the wall and current conditions of the rock (i.e. grain). Well bolted but little moves that as I was chattering as climbing actually had to think for a second.

Bring your sacrificial J-Tree rope for this area. The anchor up high runs across a low angle rock which is pretty tough on your cord. Extending with runners doesn't do much so bring a rope protector or one you don't care much about. Nov 6, 2011
