This route lies on the southeast face of the southern Bond Boulder, just left of a route up an obvious dike - Diamonds are Forever (5.10d).

This climb grabs your attention right away, as the crux is just getting to the first bolt (spotter recommended). Above, enjoyable steep slab climbing on excellent brown rock leads to the last bolt (and another crux) where a balancy lieback move guards the top. Perhaps a sport route - at least for Joshua Tree.

A fun little climb that is worth doing along with the other Bond Boulder routes or if passing by on the way to climb Vector.


3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")
