Description 

This west-facing crag actually doesn't look like much, but it has some really fun routes that stay in the sun in the winter making it great for finishing up a day in the Wonderland. The climbs on this rock are not your normal "crack" climbs as they typically involve some unprotected slab to reach them, but there are some fun and funky moves on all of the routes and the rock is solid. Must do's on this crag are Creditors Claim (5.7) and Insolvent (10b). Walk off or set up TR's by using the ramp on the left side of the formation.

Getting There 

This small crag is on the right side of the wash, just a little north of Previously Unreleased Material, and opposite of Fire Me a Burger Rock. It is behind a bunch of bushes where the wash makes an "S" turn, so you can miss it if you are not paying attention.

Rock Climbing Photo: Dan on the second crux of Insolvent 10b

Insolvent 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Bankrupt Wall
This route is on the left side of the Bankrupt Wall. There are two sections that I would call 10b. The moves to pull yourself up into the scoop at the bottom and the last couple of moves in the thin crack. Both cruxes protect well. Fun and balancy. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
