This is the large pile of boulders to the SE of Turtle Rock. There are about a half dozen routes here, and all or most all of them were put up by local Joshua Tree residents. The rock is grainy, the descents tricky, and the climbs are tricky too. Info on these climbs is in Rock Climbs of Hidden Valley 3rd Ed. Al Bartlett 2004 supplement. Climbs.
