Date Shake (5.6), Joshua Tree NP


Climb the rightmost of the obvious cracks at the right end of the wall. Step onto the wall from the boulder, or start in the cleft below. Similar difficulty either way. More challenging if you don't chimney on the wall behind you on the right.

First piece is fairly high up, and the route is definitely vertical, but holds are consistently juggy.


Standard rack; small to medium stoppers, cams.
