BETA PHOTO: Love Goddess (5.12a), Joshua Tree NP
Four bolts up a steep featured wall on mostly good holds with one stopper move- a flat hold you'll wish was better. Once past continue up easier terrain to anchors.
A fun climb that ascends an impressive formation, it is the easiest of three excellent sport routes. To the immediate right is the tricky arete of Moonshadow (5.12c), and further right the steep, thin face of La Cholla (5.12d).
This nice route is found on the north face of a huge block 100' right of Exorcist (a striking thin crack starting from a ledge). Scramble/climb onto a large boulder at the base of the route.
4 bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")
