The Nymph's Voice

5.10-, Trad, 40 ft (12 m),  Avg: 1 from 1 vote
FA: Todd & Donette Swain
California > Joshua Tree NP > Central Joshua… > Echo Rock Area > Reverberation R… > Nymph Node

Description

Begin about six feet left of Unrequited Love at the left-hand crack on the formation. The bottom of this crack overhangs and quickly goes from hands to fists. Struggle past the initial bulge to a stance, then climb the easier wide crack above to the top. This bottom of this climb is likely harder than 10- if you have small hands.

Location

Begin about six feet left of Unrequited Love at the left-hand crack on the formation.

To descend from the summit of the formation, you'll either need to do a Needles rappel or downclimb a varnished chimney on the rear of the formation (5.3).

Protection

Bring several fist and bigger sized cams. With a few medium sized cams you can make an anchor.
