Close to HVCG yet you never see anyone on it. This rock may have the best 5.4 chimney in the park for whatever that's worth.

Getting There 

This is the formation between the Blob and Rock Hudson. From the end of the main loop in HVCG towards the Outback. Outhouse Rock is directly to your right.

Featured Route For Outhouse Rock

Straight Flush 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Outhouse Rock - East Face
A decent route worthy of one star. At least there is no traffic on it. On the East Face of Outhouse rock, find a rounded pillar/buttress on the right hand end. Straight Flush climbs the shallow corner on it's left side, about 2M left of Wise Crack. It is a little dirtier than some other area routes but mostly solid rock. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
