Comments: Pretty fun. An anchor on this formation would be nice as getting down is long and tedious. As is, it makes for a nice detour to scramble up and to get to the tall "Mary Ann" slabs up and left of this boulder.

Comments: One of my favorite 5.10's in Joshua Tree. Sustained and excellent climbing. Healthy run above the second bolt, but the crux is well protected.

Comments: 2nd clip is difficult and in ground fall range, stick clip is nice. Rest of the route is pretty loose and dirty with a hard, awkward crux at the top.

Comments: "Third" pitch is very slick and classic. Pitches 1 and 2 link pretty easily, and I linked the "3rd" into pitch 4 to get to the top. Thought pitch 1 was rather contrived, runout, and forgettable, meh. Pitch 2 feels kind of squeezy and also contrived.

Comments: Agree with second comment. Beating these fragile towers into submission--and rushing to the internet to post about it afterwards--is silly and destructive.

Comments: Nice linkup to start on this and traverse right along sloping horizontal before the bolt anchor to finish on the 2nd pitch of Hog Heaven to the right. Maybe 10a or so this way, some crumblies but overall a great 180' of climbing.

Comments: Great warm up. Medium-sized offset nut protects the crux well.

Comments: Some decent rock here, but the recent grid-bolting seriously detracts from this place.

Comments: Awesome pitch. The diagonaling-left crack low start to the low start adds quite a bit of pump and difficulty to this route.

Comments: Vegetated and more like 11b, but incredible climbing. Cleaned a decent size block at the lower crux and beefed up the anchor, but it still needs actual hardware. The runout up top is for real, with huge slab whipper potential.
