Comments: "Intended"? Not sure what that means with regard to a piece of naturally occuring rock. The bolt would have been much better placed a foot to the right, and the rock quality is the same there. In any case, the route made for a very enjoyable toprope as-is, but I doubt I would lead it again.

Comments: Good climbing. Crux (5th) bolt is poorly positioned and could easily lead to being flipped in a fall, detracts quite a bit from an otherwise very good line.

Comments: Not 11a anymore. Bad fall from the crux, climber beware.

Comments: You will need a BD6 to actually protect the top section. Very stout for the grade.

Comments: Great route! One #4 will get you up this safely but a 5 wouldn't hurt.

Comments: Great route. The chimney is about 5.7 at hardest so I wouldn't stress much about it much if you have a bit of wide crack technique.

Comments: Haven't gotten to those yet but plan on it. Great little spot for a nice half day of climbing.

Comments: Broke the right hand intermediate at the first crux, although there is still a shitty little pinch left. Doesn't seem to change the crux much, which is still a height-dependent deadpoint kind of affair. Chicken bolt up high seemed reasonable and I didn't mind clipping it even after doing the route a few months ago before it was there.

Comments: Good climbing, but multiple opportunities for bone-crushing falls onto the boulder behind if you biff it at the wrong moment. Would not recommend to those breaking into the grade.

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.
