Description 

Most of the established routes on this series of domes face the southwest and bask in the sun. They ascend sparsely bolted faces or wide cracks / chimneys on fair quality rock. However, Life Without Principle (11b), an exceptional steep slab / face climb (115') that is reasonably well protected with 9 bolts, is worth checking out.

Getting There 

Follow the detailed directions to Disneyland Dome posted by Craig Clarence. The southwest faces of the Thrutcher Dome crags are across a boulder strewn gully.

Life Without Principle 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Thrutcher Dome
Begin at the southern end of a light brown crag adjacent to the highest and northern most crag. Climb in a left tending direction past the 3rd bolt until reaching a horizontal at the 6th bolt. Continue up and slightly right past three more bolts to the summit. You will be greeted by 10+ / 11- moves above each bolt enroute to the top. The most difficult moves occur between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.
