Dino's Egg-West Face. Photo by Blitzo.
This large, rounded boulder with it's dark brown/tan mottled appearance does look like a gigantic dinosaur egg sitting out in the desert. You'll find the boulder just west of the Chuckawalla Boulder
atop a flat slab of rock and notice that it has a smaller piece that's split off the east face.
Problems here range in difficulty from V-easy to V2 with most being V1 and under providing a good concentration of easy to moderate problems. Highlights here include the patina speckled face of the West Face
(5.9), the fun hand traverse of The Egg Timer
(5.9) and the positive and then sloping moves on Platypus
Descent is usually done by downclimbing the West Arete (V-easy), but it's possible to downclimb a bit and jump off as well if you like.
Weather station 9.9 miles from here

Located on the northern side of the Dino's Egg Boulder where a large chunk has broken off.Sit start around and right from the Sit Down Flake (V2) and hand traverse the lip of the boulder around and left to top out as for the Sit Down Flake. The problem isn't especially difficult (5.9) or strenuous and your feet are never more than a few feet above the ground.* This obvious but easier problem is not listed in the Joshua Tree bouldering guide but is another fun problem in the area....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
