This route is directly across from Lenore Goldberg. It starts out going up a ramp about 15' up, then after that you're in the business. If you're tall, it looks like you can reach up and get right into the crack. For my shorter kin, i couldn't tell you what to do, because i couldn't touch it. The crack starts out thin and gets wide at the top, and is somewhat overhanging. Looks like some liebacking, some jamming, hopefully someday i can figure it out. All in all, looks good.


Cams (probably up to #4 BD) and nuts

The wee folk should be able to do this climb.....just put your hands in the crack and let the battle begin. It's actually a very good climb, but unfortunately, like many climbs in Joshua Tree, not very long. Give it another try, Justin;....I'll go over there with you and we can both get beat up on the climb. Please give this climb a star too;'s deserving and worthy of it.

I'm sure many wee folk can get it, just not this one, not yet, we'll have to head over there after the summer. I do believe the climb is well worth one star, it looks great, I just wasn't sure on the ethics of starring a route if I didn't finish it.
