Description 

This is a complex formation directly west of Intersection Rock. Much of it is broken rock, but there is a smoother section near its north end, and most of the listed routes are on this wall.

Getting There 

Walk west across the road from Intersection Rock. You can also easily access it from the road leading to Turtle Rock. It's just north of the road, about 200 yards from the main park road.

Son Volt Arete 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Foundry, The
Climb a shallow easy crack (1 bolt) to a shelf. Clip another bolt and move directly onto the arete. A series of powerful and technical moves to the next bolt comprise the crux of this route. A few stances help control the pump, topped with a tricky ending. Quite short, but with almost zero approach and easy off anchors the Son Volt Arete has alot to offer....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
