This large, west-facing boulder/block is located southeast of the Mushroom Boulder and almost directly across from the Bullet Hole Wall.

Four known routes exist with the best of the bunch being All that Glitters (5.10b), Golden Opportunity (5.10d), both of which climb somewhat roughly textured stone highly reminiscent of Joshua Tree.

Getting There 

Starting from a large clearing southwest of the Pistol Whipped Wall head west and then northwest along a narrow dirt road, passing an old concrete foundation, which leads to a large circular parking area. From the apex of the parking area a short hike, of about a minute, heading east will lead to the formation.

This route as some fun (although painful) moves getting up to the second bolt. The crux is between the first and second bolt as you lieback a thin seam until you can get a painful finger lock and reach the jugs just under the second bolt. The climbing above the second bolt is easy and forgettable....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
