Joker (V1), Joshua Tree NP


Climbs the right side of the Black Lichen Boulder; the problem Ace lies about 10' to the left.

The crux comes early as you press out some thin edges and you bring your feet up onto a high shelf. Once on the slab work your way up the high-angle slab via sloping edges and delicate footwork to a commiting high-step just below the top. Downclimb via a juggy crack to the left which splits the boulder into two.
