Stem off a boulder on the right to reach a good sidepull, toe onto the rock and then reach for a good flat edge. Match the edge, get your feet up then go for the incut lip. Fun moves and much easier than it looks. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
