Description 

This northeast-facing rock is the first major formation that one will encounter on the trail to the White Cliffs of Dover This rock is steep enough that, while the belayer will be exposed to sunlight in the morning, the climbs will have at least some degree of shade all day. Without a doubt, the classic on the formation is Right Baskerville Crack (5.10a). Descent is a walk-off.

Getting There 

Starting from Trashcan Rock, find a well developed trail that heads south towards an obvious band of cliffs...the rocks high up on this hill are the White Cliffs of Dover Note: this trail can be found on the eastern-most side of the parking lot in the back. Hike the trail for approximately 1/2 mile; Baskerville Rock is the first one encountered.

Right Baskerville Crack 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Baskerville Rock
As you approach the area, you will see several blocks near each other. Baserkerville Rock is the leftmost of these formations. This route follows the crack furthest to the right on Baskerville Rock. Face climb for 15 feet until you reach a stance where one can place bomber pro. This is where the crux begins. The beauty of this route is that you'll get great stances to place gear, but the climbing never really eases off either. Enjoy!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
