BETA PHOTO: Fingertip Traverse of Josh (5.7+), Joshua Tree NP


Pep Boys Crag is a bit nondescript, but is just south of the distinctive Milepost which sits right next to the road (west side). It's sort of small and blobby, and doesn't look like there would be any routes.

There are rap bolts near the top of Fingertrip Traverse of Josh, and a walk off towards the southeast.

Getting There

It is approx 3/4 mile south of the intersection with Lost Horse Ranger Station Rd.The Roadside Rocks Area includes formations on both sides of the road. Pep Boys Crag is the northern most of the formations that sit on the west side of the road.

Anchor bolts atop adjacent Two Guys On The Wrong Climb to climber's left, with slung beefy rap ring.
