Description 

Close to HVCG yet you never see anyone on it. This rock may have the best 5.4 chimney in the park for whatever that's worth.

Getting There 

This is the formation between the Blob and Rock Hudson. From the end of the main loop in HVCG towards the Outback. Outhouse Rock is directly to your right.

Strawberry Jam 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Outhouse Rock - East Face
This route is located on the left side of the east face, just right of an obvious chimney system which diagonals up and right.A thin start leads to a ledge (the outer edge of the chimney) where a bridge/stem across to a nice hand crack continues to the summit. Rap anchors located on the opposite side of the rock atop the Northwest Chimney route.This is a nice route with good gear that's only minutes from the campground. Take care with your technique and try not to leave any "jam" behind....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
