Actually, the FA of this route (with aid) was done by George Harr & others 10/54.
Also, the route was free climbed in 1977 by John Bachar (5.11a, R).
It should not be listed as an aid climb.

Hi Ken. Glad to see you are posting routes and getting out to Josh. Joshua Tree West has the most up to date FA and route info for the western part of the Park. I like the historical photos.
