The Unmentionable from the trail, Joshua Tree NP


This fairly large boulder has but a couple problems, Unmentionable (V3) on the west face and Unspeakable (V0) on the east face. Despite the name the real unmentionable is the curiously shaped spire directly in front of this boulder's west face. A casual descent exists down the very slabby north side of the boulder.

Getting There 

Located midway between the Victory Boulder near Real Hidden Valley and the boulders at the base of the Jimmy Cliff formation on the east side of the trail. The approach takes about 10 minutes from the Real Hidden Valley parking area.
