From Joshua Tree, California

|Actually, the climb pretty much sucks, even though from the campground, the triangluar face with the scoops that are highly visible look fun and cool. Getting on the climb is a pain in the ass, and once you are on the scoops, it's easy and quite run-out, up until the top. Then you have a couple of cool 5.9 moves and then the anchor. It's a bomb and it sucks...but go do it anyways;....then you will know for sure. I doubt if it has had a second ascent.....After you do the climb, then you can tell everyone at work that you "did" Nicole Kidman.......(even Locker can say this ...for he was on the FA...).....you get Locker's sloppy seconds...there is a double bolt rap anchor (bring a sling to leave;..the one's up there are old by now)....and probably 3 or 4 bolts on the climb.
