AFPA stands for "across from picnic area" and is indeed directly across the road from the picnic area at Trashcan Rock. Several spots for bouldering exist here - the The Broken Boulder as well as along the base of AFPA's west and east faces.

Getting There 

Park at Trashcan Rock (5.9 miles from the West Entrance) and walk across the road or very limited parking is available another 0.1 miles up the road on the right in a small dirt turnout.

Climbing Season

For the Quail Springs Bouldering area.

Sit start at the lowest shelf, up to the ledge, move left and into a mantle and then finish up the dark brown slab.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
