Indian Cove Bouldering Rock Climbing

This lower elevation area can be a good choice when it's cold and windy in the main part of the Park. Although bouldering here has never been documented in any guidebook it's obvious that limited activity has been going on here for many years.
The rock tends to be of somewhat lesser quality in the Indian Cove Area but thankfully exceptions do exist in the campground area as well as further afield.
Check the various sub-areas for more detailed approach information.

Vassal Lean V4 6B CA
: Joshua Tree National Park
: ... : Feudal Boulder
This interesting problem offers interesting moves on rock that's a little on the rough side. SDS at an good undercling and contort your body (the vassal lean) as you work your hands along the steep arete. Gain a good jug and work up to the top. Can be done from a standing start at about V0+.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

The miramontes guidebook has all this stuff in it. Maybe it was updated, there are quite a few JT problems listed on MP as "not in a guidebook" and I can look them up in the guidebook in 20 seconds.
