Description 

SDS at a flake and then make balancy moves to get established on it before moving right onto the steep slab, working up rounded bumps to the top. Cooler temps help on this problem as the handholds are quite sloping in nature.

Somewhat of an eliminate at the crux as you come very close to, but don't use, holds on Blurb.

  • This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area.

According to Joshua Tree Bouldering, ISBN:978-0-9826154-8-5, this climb is named Blurb Center . Can anyone clarify as to the exact name of the climb? It appears that the climbing grade is slightly easier at V2.
