The area faces Park Blvd.

Outback Crack V0-1 4+  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Outback Crack Block
I wasn't able to find this route on MP, please let me know if it's referenced in guidebooks.Sit-start on a very nice ledge. Easy down climb with the tree on.Beta:Some of the flakes are chossy, keep it euro and utilize the crack. Double hand match on the ledge, cross to a bomber jug on the crack. Start hiking up. It can get slopey but you'll have very secure feet once you start eurostepping. Very safe top-out with plenty of jugs....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
