The Seitch is the next large rock, about 150 yards to the north of Bobcat Rock. There is a smaller tri-summited rock (Patch Dome) at it's northwest end. The Seitch is about 450 yards north of Brownie Girl Dome.
It's pretty big for Joshua Tree, over one hundred feet high. Several routes exist.
Only a couple are mentioned in the JTW guide.
More info would be nice, if anyone has any.

Getting There 

From Key's Corner/Wonderland trail parking, follow the Wonderland trail until just before it passes the nearest rocks. Head north passing Brownie Girl Dome and then Bobcat Rock. The Seitch will be the next obvious, large formation.

Climb up over easier rock to get to the first bolt. Face climb over the bulges and make your way past the crux at the main roof. After the last bolt, get gear where you can and continue up to the bolted anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
