|Dairy Queen Wall - Left Side
Climbs a steepening slab to vertical headwall (5.11) before entering a steep but featured crack system (5.8). Angle left to the chain anchors on Get Right or Get Left, or gear belay and scramble/climb left to access the anchors to rap (100' rap!).
Note: A huge piece of rock has fallen from this route making it much harder than it's original 5.10a rating.
Enjoyable climbing on quality rock, and in a locale that sees little traffic make this a good tick for the grade if in the area. Two stars out of five.
Starts just right of Get Right or Get Left (aka Addams Family).
4 bolts (all 3/8"), gear to 2.5"

The newest Joshua Tree guide (JT West) mistakenly lists this as having only three bolts.

...and Vogel didn't even have you listed for the FA(Lead) Chris!! LOL Where's the love?

What is with that Vogel guy anyway?
Actually, a guide is only as good as the info provided by others -- I don't personally climb every route.
Any omission was purely unintentioned.

A major portion of the roof below bolt #4 has fallen off making this route much harder than 5.10a. To keep the route at it's original 5.10a rating traverse left into Get Right or Get Left after clipping the 4th bolt and then back right when able to latch the fin which leads into the right crack system. The route still goes direct but is about 5.11 or so and not as enjoyable as before.

Thanks for the info Chris - that certainly explains it - I did this route today (12/6/08) and immediately knew I wasn't in 5.10a territory, felt like 5.11+ to me too, Also, clipping the quickdraw at the fourth bolt - pretty tricky...
