This route is okay. Do not use the back of the chimney if you want to keep the rating at 5.8 (probably 5.6 if you do). Best done as a top rope after leading Eyestrain or Filch.

This route is in both Rock Climbs of Lost Horse Valley (Bartlett) and Joshua Tree West (Vogel).

This route being absent from your guidebook makes sense as this is definitely not one of the best Joshua Tree has to offer.
