Little Rascal Rock Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Little Rascal Rock (West Face), Joshua Tree NP.
You'll find this boulder located just below the east face of King Dome
and recognize it by the right-slanting crack system of Alfalfa
There's a few problems to be done here which range from V1 to V3 with most on good quality rock. No easy descent is to be had from this boulder - the best option is to place a pad on the northeast face (lowest side) and jump off.
Hike out to King Dome
and head for the middle of the east face where you'll find the boulder a short way right of center very near the base. The approach takes 10-15 minutes from the parking area.
