BETA PHOTO: Photo/topo for Alpentine Wall, Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Begin climbing on the coarse face, below the overhang, on the left side of the alcove/left facing corner. Climb up and left using side pulls on the sculpted hueco feature. Continue up and left on featured rock with numerous pod-like crevices. Once established to the left of the overhang move right on a wild, but awkward stemming maneuver to pass the bulge. Climb over a pair of large boulders. Move up and right above a deep void to the base of a right slanting, flaring crack. Pull into the crack on flared pockets and the flakey face on the right. Continue up the crack to a featured face to a ledge with a wide hand crack for the belay.

Location 

Begin 40 ft. left of "Alpentine" below a left facing corner in a recess or alcove. Just left of the right facing corner, between Potlicker and Alpentine.

Protection 

Several small cams (C3) to 3." Fiddly protection in small slots and flaring cracks.
