I love Joshua Tree!

Description 

This climbs up the middle of the dome shaped formation on the lower part of the Mary Worth Buttress.

Reasonably well-protected friction/edgy face past 7 bolts leads to a bolted anchor/rap. Take a 60 meter rope to descend as the rap is about 95'.

Not a standout climb but worth doing when in the area; it makes a good warm-up climb before heading uphill to do Welcome To Joshua Tree.

Protection 

7 bolts to a bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8").

Name derived from (and a reference to) Frontal Lobotomy.

As the saying goes: "Better a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy."

I thought this was a nice little route on decent rock and with adequate protection.
