This route is mostly an aid route, but it does have a few free moves at the end. The climb traverses out under a huge dark black cave/roof, using natural gear, and a bolt and fixed pin too. Turn the big roof on a couple of bolts, then clip a few fixed pins and fixed copperheads, then follow a crack up and right to a few free moves to a dike to finish the route off. Most of the tricky placements are fixed, and the crux on the first ascent was hand drilling a few aid bolts hanging upside down out the big roof! Watch for rope drag. Joshua Tree has many excellent "practice" aid climbs; this is one of them. Walk off to the right.

No need to bring any pins, heads or such;...just cams and stoppers and quick draws. The tricky placements are ( hopefully ) fixed.
