Cadillac Crack (V1 R), Hidden Crack (V3) and Pebble Without a Cause (V6) are notable problems here.

Getting There 

Drive 3.8 miles down the Geology Tour Road and park in a turnout on the right suitable for about 3 or 4 cars. Cross the road and the boulders will be in front of you at ground level in front of a rubble pile.

Steeper than the problems to the left, this goes up near vertical face on edges to a committing high step near the top. Easy descent off the backside.* 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....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
