Melon Boulder Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Melon Boulder, Joshua Tree NP
Tucked away in a quiet canyon that's relatively close to the road is this nice boulder with a handful of quality problems from V-easy to V3 with Enter the Melon
(V1) and Classic Melon
(V3) being the best.
Park in the paved pullout just past The Milepost
which is about .25 miles past the large Hemingway lot. Hike west from the car following a signed trail and then veer left (south) following an old road into the canyon behind the roadside crags. Aim for the right side of the canyon where you'll find the boulder just behind a large pine tree. The approach takes 10-15 minutes.
