The Desert Queen Mine area has above average rock quality for Josh. There are many quality routes. The Lower Tier of The Towers is also good. Two hard TR's are listed on good rock and a fine 5.10a called A Bridge Too Far

A Bridge Too Far 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : The Lower Tier
Start in a crystal filled chimney which is very featured and beautiful (hence easy)yet a bit tricky to protect. At the top place pro in the thin crack on the face, stem out and climb the splitter finger crack. A steep bulge near the top is encountered. This is a very good route which we dubbed the "Johnny Quest" of JT (Tahquitz reference)....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
