This is a 5 bolt face climb that goes up the right side of the Central Formation at Lizard's Landing. The rock quality is not "perfect" , but the climbing is fun enough. I bet the bolts aren't 3/8 " bolts, which would make this climb a candidate for some retro bolting. Jason Porter, a visiting Brit, was refering to John Wilson's Ginger Tuftis, John being another visiting Brit. (I use the tern "visiting" loosely, for these climbers would come often to Joshua Tree and stay for many months at a time.)


Starts in the middle of the face, and goes up and left.....follow the bolts and holds.


QDs for the bolts, bolted anchor on top. Some of the bolts are 1/4"....
