Start below the undercut slab and move up on marginal holds to get established on the low-angled slab which steepens at the top.

  • This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide (2003) but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area.


North side of the boulder and just left of a catclaw.

Mulligan did this problem in around '05(?). Not sure if he gave it a name.

Pretty sure this was called Mulligan slab in the book.

Once again, Chris making up names for problems he didn't FA ;)

"Mulligan Slab" is a made-up name as well, just like the other two "Mulligan Slabs" listed in the current guidebook; there are another 15 "Mulligan Problems" that are listed in the book and guess how they all got their current "names"?

Chris, I apologize again for being a jerk about problem naming. Mulligan problems were named so because Mulligan did these first ascents, but he did not name them, or perhaps he did and I was not aware of the name. In accord with Socal tradition (Fry Problem, Hensel Face, Powell Slab), I referred to them as Mulligan problems.

I should add that if anyone disputes the FA and name of a climb, I am certainly interested in ferreting out the correct information.
