This small block lies to the west of Houser Buttress and has a small collection of crack and face routes on it's south and east faces. The cleverly named Armageddon Tired (5.11a) is the standout here.

Badger's Chuff Piece 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Houser Block
Located on the right arete of a square boulder 100' to the left of Houser Buttress, this route faces the trail. Armageddon Tired (5.11a) is also located on the boulder, right and up from BCP.Height dependent routes usually have a single move or two. BCP has no less than three, one for each bolt. A technical and entertaining route, but I wouldn't recommend it as a lead for anyone under 5'10"....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
