Rancho Relaxo (aka Boys on the Hood)

5.10b, Sport, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 3.2 from 13 votes
FA: Toprope: Alan Bartlett. Lead, after bolting: Frank & Kelly
California > Joshua Tree NP > Central Joshua… > Echo Rock Area > Cuckoo's Nest


Climbs a mini-dihedral (6") for 35+ ft, with lieback moves and friction. Tricky and insecure. Bolts are exactly where you need them, tho!


5' to the R of Daredevil


6 bolts. Anchors at top with rap rings.

[Hide Comment] Rancho Relaxo is a blast. Insecure feet make you think and push hard to trust yourself. Not overbolted, great job! Dec 20, 2016
[Hide Comment] Fantastic route, I highly recommend it. 5.10b is a total sandbag, I'd say 5.10d for the walk up onsite. Apr 10, 2017

[Hide Comment] Felt harder than 10b to me. Oct 7, 2018
[Hide Comment] Too short to be classic, and there's some good moves but not really worth the hike. Jan 5, 2020
