Comments: Derrick - Polique Canyon is the smoothest of the different approach roads; perhaps it's time for some new shocks on your vehicle?

Comments: Yes it's true, the anchors used to be where the last bolt was but were moved higher to provide additional climbing and a more logical stopping point at the no-hands ledge.

While possible to make the last moves onto the ledge awkward and unpleasant, good beta can make it casual and in fact quite fun.

Comments: This route is listed in the 1989 Joshua Tree Supplement (Vogel/Bartlett), the 1992 Joshua Tree Guidebook (Vogel) and both editions (1992 and 2002) of the Rock Climbs of Central Joshua Tree guidebook (Bartlett) as having one bolt.

Obviously a second bolt has been added, not unlike W.A.C. in Echo Cove, which needs to be removed - Murf, you out there?

Comments: The left bolt has an older, thinner SMC hanger while the right has a newer thicker hanger. The older SMC hangers are the ones to be worried about as they have had some failures whereas the newer, thicker ones are just fine.
