Bedroom Smackdown, Tramway

Remember to fill out a wilderness permit, even if climbing for the day! MORE INFO >>>


Bedroom Smackdown starts with delicate, balancy moves and ends with a desperate slap-happy finish to top it out.

Start at the obvious horizontal crack, and work your way right and up through the crack cross. Crux is topping out the beach on top. The rock crumbles under your hands, but with the right technique and enough desperation, one can top it out and feel the elation of the Smackdown.

Even after enlisting a small army of day laborers to clean the climb, rock still crumbles under your hands and feet at the top. But the climb still flows well and has some fun moves. Top it out. Do it right. Love life. Climb hard.

Note: We heard the boulder may have been named "Samurai X" by another group. But there were no samurais in site, and the cracks form a "T", not an X. We suspect the boulder had an earthly shift at some point and was an "X", but after the shift, the cracks form a "T".

The reason nobody bothered with this before was the cool bonsai that was making a go in the horizontal crack that appears to have been snapped off and discarded to make the problem go - way classy.

This thing is a grainpile (although it's cleaning up) and would be V2+ tops in Joshua Tree.

I watched Joe Morgan climb this thing in around 2001. It looked so shitey that I didn't bother putting it in the guide.
