The Mushroom Boulder, Holcomb Valley Pinnacles


Hidden away in a less visited part of the Pinnacles is this monolithic boulder with a handful of routes ranging in difficulty from 5.9 to 5.12. Visible through the trees from the nearby parking area, this stone mushroom with it's distinctive cap features short but quality climbs on excellent stone.

Routes listed left to right:

Gold Fever (5.10a TR)
Goldstrike (5.9)
Harsh (5.12c)

Getting There 

Starting from a large clearing southwest of the Pistol Whipped Wall head west and then northwest along a narrow dirt road which leads to a large circular parking area. A 3 minute hike from the apex of the parking area along a trail will lead to the formation.

Harsh 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  California : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Mushroom Boulder
Make easy moves onto a sloping ledge to reach a high 1st bolt which is best stick clipped. Thin edges with marginal feet (crux) pass the 1st bolt and soon become larger as you reach the next bolt. Pull the roof on good holds and saunter up the upper face to anchors.This route is basically a boulder problem (which is somewhat reachy) to easier moves above, as well as being one of the hardest routes at the Pinnacles....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
