Desert Rat Crack

V-easy, Boulder, 14 ft,  Avg: 2.1 from 23 votes
FA: unknown
California > Joshua Tree NP > Joshua Tree Bou… > Hidden Valley C… > HVCG Bouldering… > HVCG West > Pothole Rock


Climbs a grainy arete/dihedral with a flaring crack and slopes. The Mantel is the hard part, but that is to be expected here. Not a fun top out for shorties.


Pad and spotter.

[Hide Comment] Good movement and can be done some different ways. Good intro climb for newer climbers to trust the top out moves and commit to finishing the problem. Dec 29, 2014
