Planet Claire features challenging blunt arete squeezing and pressing to start out of the catsclaw on standard issue Josh oatmeal, before moving up and left spiral staircase style following a line of good holds on increasingly better rock to the top of the pinnacle.

This route featured surprisingly fun moves, and would be better but for lack of traffic which has the lower half of the route in pretty gritty shape.

The FA was Dave Evans based on the 'DEE' stamp on one of the hangers, others may have been in on the FA fun.


On the Planet X pinnacle, starts on the blunt arete 15' left of Planet Y.


6 bolts, the 5 lead bolts are all buttonheads (5/16") and there is one 3/8" bolt at the start of the route. The route is fully bolted, but this is Joshua Tree.

Yeah, I'd give this one two stars but for the grit down low... Nov 28, 2010

Surprisingly good, don't let the grain down low dissuade you. Crux right off the ground, then fun continuous moves on nice edges. Nov 28, 2010
