The routes here, for the most part, share a common theme: they all start with "Pathetic." Fortunately, that's just the name; the climbing is good.

Getting There 

Walk across the street from the Jumbo Rocks campground. Keep walking, bear slightly left, look for an obvious dome with an obvious offwidth/chimney splitting it up the middle. It's kind of hard to miss.

Climbing Season

Pathetic Crack 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Pathetic Dome
Pathetic Crack is the obvious, wide crack splitting Pathetic Dome. Don't let the guidebook fool you; it's definitely NOT a "hand crack."The 5.6 crux is in the first ten feet of offwidth, followed by pleasant chimneying on up.If you're planning to toprope Pathetic Face (well worth doing, since you're already here), it's just as efficient to top out left on Pathetic Crack and only build the anchor once....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
