Rocky Marciano, Joshua Tree NP

Description 

Although this is a large formation, there is not a lot of climbing to do here.

Getting There 

This is a boulder pile located about 3 miles down Geology Tour Road. Park at the 4th turnout and hike west for 1/2 mile. Look for the very overhanging south face, which is split by an imposing crack - Simple Simon. It is about 1/2 mile north of Jerry's Quarry. Hard to miss.

Climbing Season

For the Geology Tour Road area.

Weather station 12.8 miles from here
