The Chongo Shield (V5 R), Joshua Tree NP


This covers all of the boulders from the Park entrance to the Lost Horse Road. There is not a large concentration of problems at any one area which means you'll need to drive around a bit to some of the boulders. The rock in this area tends to be overall quite good with some being excellent and the lack of obvious crowds is a nice plus.

Miledi V3 6A California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Miledi Boulder
This superb problem is found in the center of the north face and features excellent grey stone throughout it's length. Lieback a right-facing flake to about two-thirds height, make some committing moves to get stood up on the top of the flake and then ease your way to the top - the ground is a long ways down at this point!The base is flat but sloping so you might want to terrace your pads to level it out. A sit start can be done which adds a few more moves and bumps the grade up to V5....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
