At the crux

Description 

This route climbs the big, clean corner on the north side of the rock. This route used to be a little flaky, but it has now cleaned up considerably, to give a much better and slightly harder route, probably at the top end of the grade.
Joshua Tree has a bunch of good stemming corners but this is one the best.

Location 

This route climbs the big, clean corner on the north side of the rock. It is mostly shady.

Protection 

Protection is good, but hard to place. Almost the entire lower crack is #3 BD stopper size, so bring 4-5 in that size. Small to medium wires, RP's a few tcu's and 1"-2" cams for the final crack. The anchor uses 1-1.5" cams 15' back from the edge. A tree provides a convenient rap.

I found that the lower crack protected with a variety of RPs and small/micro wires. I don't think I placed any #3 BD nuts. That being said, most of the pieces I placed were around that size.

This is a super rad route.
