Shorty Crag Area, Joshua Tree NP

Description 

A little crag with very good rock down low. Only one route so far on the lower area.

Getting There 

Same parking as for the Pixar Wall Area. From the Echo Cove parking area drive North for 0.4 miles to a pullout on the right.

You will see the Shorty Crag on the hillside to the east: a small, steep wall with smooth dark brown patina down low and lighter colored rock up high.

Climbing Season

For the Echo Rock Area area.

Weather station 9.5 miles from here
