Comments: Thanks, guys, the Diamond is one of the best places on Earth. We definitely caught our share of a beating that day.

Comments: No sir, just happens to be a 10 minute walk from the car. As opposed to 90% of Joshua Tree classics that hug the road.

Comments: Super solid stacks for 70 ft. 1-#4 and 3-#5's did it for me. Once you could use a C4 #6 , it was not even worth placing.

Comments: Excellent route, lots of sustained 5.7 face climbing. All the run-out sections never felt desperate or scary as the face is full of features, crimps, etc. As for the main concern of the "Culp"... route-finding... just go to and print out Eli's topo. Pretty much dead on for all the pitches, aside from pitch 5 from the Crystal Ledge. My partner and did about 30m of simul and a belay shift to reach the pitch #6 belay under the white roof. We ended up doing the face in 5 rope stretc... more >>

Comments: Fun route. Good easy climbing leads to the crux which is strenous due to lack of soild feet on small tips fingers. Good warm up for some of the other routes on Wall Street.

Comments: Good route, fun kinda ends after bouldery start. Soild gear and a fun committing slab high step to the jug undercling finish.

Comments: This is a great route, which we lead on gear and was very solid on placements. Starting on the large pocket about shoulder height, reach left to the crimp sidepull. Layback pinch the pocket with the rock embedded in it. With the right hand and make a somewhat long reach to the crimpy rail 2 feet above on decent feet. A little runout out on the bouldery first 10-12 feet, but once moving from the crimpy rail, lock your fingers into the crack. Here is the first available placement for gear a #1 Ca... more >>

Comments: IMO This route is not worth doing. As of the date mentioned 4/30/09 there is only 2 bolt in 70 feet to the anchor. Probably won't ground out but there is a chance without an attentive belay on the runouts. Holds are zero and 99% of this wall is covered in lichen due to infrequent travel making most feet pretty polished. This is all capped with a manky 3 pin anchor and shredding equalized webbing to the rap-ring. One route for the boldly stupid, such as my self ,trying to get in what I thought wo... more >>
