Description 

Just off the road, this small rock has good routes in the 5.10 range. The south side (Fire or Retire, Cranking Skills or Hospital Bills) is warm and protected from the wind, and would be a location on colder days. The south east face (No Perch is Necessary, The Usual Suspects) is less sheltered.


Getting There 

Park in the south side pullout a few hundred yards before the Real Hidden Valley/Intersection Rock intersection. The southeast face is clearly visible from the road. To approach it, walk around the right and up. For the south face head left and around.

Fire or Retire 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Jam or Slam Rock
Hidden from view until almost at the base, this route on the southwest face is located in a sunny and sheltered spot which is perfect for those chilly days. The climb is identified as a left-facing vertical corner which is jammed, liebacked and stemmed to a horizontal three-quarters of the way up. The original finish cut right in the horizontal but a newer bolted finish straightens out the line. A lot of variety is packed into this climb which makes it well worth a visit or two....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
