Roadside Rocks Bouldering Rock Climbing
Classic Melon (V3), Joshua Tree NP
This section covers a large area from the Lost Horse Road south to the intersection with the Real Hidden Valley Road. A number of pullouts are available to access the various problems and most of the approaches are fairly quick with little to no scrambling.
Notable problems in this area are Chunkers
(V-easy), False Up 20
(V0-), Dead Pinyon Crack (V0 R), False Blockhead
(V1), Lip Service
(V2), Yabo Roof
(V3) and the classic JBMFP
Please see the individual boulders for more information. Most of the bouldering is, as the name says, "roadside" - so plan on a 5-10 minute walk max for most problems.

This classic problem takes a proud line directly up the middle of the large boulder near False Up 20 (V0-), and sits directly across the road from Double Cross. Depending on how tall you are there are a few different starting holds, but thin holds are the name of the game on this problem. Don't breath too hard as you might blow yourself off the crux, but as you hit that last hold with your right hand, rest assured that the final throw for the lip might look far but that hold is huge!...[more] Browse More Classics in California
