Cosmosis 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Apparition Rock (Front)
Begin to the right of Apparition. Climb up 50' of discontinuous cracks with some loose rock to a sloping ledge. Continue up another 10', then traverse up and left along crux hand crack (.75 cam helpful) to join last 5' of Apparition. Belay from slung block. Descent: scramble to climber's left down gully. In my opinion, the last 30' of the route warrants a 2- star rating, but the lower section is not too memorable, so overall a one star route, especially when compared to Apparition....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
