Grit Roof (5.10d), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

North Horror Rock is a large jumbled formation with routes scattered about it's various faces. Despite it's proximity to the parking area the majority of routes here seldom get done.

Some of the better routes here include the featured face of House Of The Homeless (5.9), Lippo Suction (5.10a) a short but fun face, the striking roof crack of Grit Roof (5.10d), the balancey arete of Ungawaa (5.11a) and Face Lift (5.11c) another tricky arete.

Getting There 

Easily reached via a good trail from the paved parking area.

Due to rope drag, this is best done in two pitches. For the first pitch, climb an offwidth on the right or a 5.9+ finger/hand crack on the left. The second pitch goes up a hand crack (crux) to a good rest, and then up a slightly overhanging finger crack to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
