A two pitch crack route.

P1> Climb an adventurous chimney, (avoid a sprawling Datura bush in the back) to a bolted anchor on the right. 5.8 ~ 60 feet

P2> Traverse left and climb a strenuous finger to thin hand size crack. Above follow a nice hand size crack / lieback. Move left to the bolted anchor on Catapult. 5.11d ~70 feet


An obvious chimney right of Catapult leads to a stunning splitter.


standard trad rack to 3" - a #5 camelot would fit the crux of the P1 chimney, there is a bomber #3 camelot just below you. Bolted anchors. Rappel or continue up Tower of Godliness to make the best 4 pitch crack route in Joshua Tree.
