Centered around the Cap Rock parking area and loop trail is an excellent and extensive circuit of moderate (V0-V3) boulder problems, including many slab problems. Also in this area are some of the parks most classic bouldering lines - Pumping Monzonite (V7), All Washed Up (V6) and Soar Eagle (V8) as well as the more approachable Picture Perfect (V1).

Getting There 

Boulder problems abound - either just explore or use the Gingery book or RTM's newer book with more extensive directions and more photos of boulders/problems!

All Washed Up V6 7A  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Sandy Wash Corridor
The left side of the face, climb obvious small crimps up overhanging rock of excellent quality. At the higher horizontal somewhat larger crimps provide a bit of relief as you figure out how to negotiate the completely blank, rounded topout and get to that jug that's too far away :) Totally awesome problems and reasonably straightforward for the grade compared to some of Joshua Tree's classic "blank" nightmares!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
