Joel on Relic (V9), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

This is the boulder directly south of the Iron Door Cave (IDC) Boulder and recognizable by it's overhung north face resembling a breaking wave of stone. The rock here is mostly tan with the exception of the dark patina on the north-facing problems. Short but fun problems for all abilities - Bedrock Arete (V0), Stoney Point Problem (aka Bambam) (V3), Yabba Dabba Do (V6), Relic (V9) and Tidal Wave (V11).

Getting There 

Approach from Hidden Valley CG by following a trail past the east face of The Blob, from the paved road near the vicintiy of Steve Canyon or even from the vicinity of Echo Cove.

This problem is located around the corner from Bedrock Arete on the Tidal Wave Boulder and faces west. One or two powerful moves on crimps and slopers with difficult feet are the gist of it. Although short, it is clean and certainly worth trying when in the area. Good landing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
