Description 

This area lies to the east of Pope’s Hat. It is named for its signature climb: Big Bob’s Big Wedge – a boulder problem going out a long roof crack near the ground.


Getting There 

The easiest approach is from the eastern parking loop in the Live Oak Picnic Area – walk south and west from there.

The last moves can be committing.This should be on every wide-crack climber's tick list for Joshua Tree.
