Rock detail at The Pet Cemetery, Joshua Tree NP


This area lies on the northeast corner of the Negropolis Hillside and features some easier routes as well as a small collection of quality sport routes. The rock quality is good and although the routes are on the short side they are fun and worth doing. Routes to do here include Skeleton Crew (5.10c), Bone Merchant (5.11a) and Pet Cemetery (5.11a).

Getting There 

Located 3.0 miles from the Park entrance, 0.4 miles from The Negropolis and 2.9 miles from Trashcan Rock. Park in a dirt pullout on the east side of the road (left if driving into the Park) and walk east along the north side of the Negropolis Hillside. Once the backside of the formation is reached hike up a small hill to the base of the routes. The approach should take about 10 minutes.

Climbing Season

For the Quail Springs Area area.
