Occupied Campsite Rule In Effect! MORE INFO >>>


With close to half a dozen problems and no approach the Picnic Boulder could be just the ticket for some casual bouldering if in the area. The rock is a little on the rough side here but if the weather is on the chilly side and your skin is up to it they can be quite fun. The easiest way off the boulder is down Ant Line.

Highlights here include the technical Whole Lotta Nothing (V2) and the exhilarating No Picnic (V3 R).

Remember to be courteous and ask before bouldering here if the campsite is occupied.

Whole Lotta Nothing V2 5+  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Picnic Boulder
Starts left of some black flakes and climbs more or less straight up the face utilizing edges, slopers, crystal pinches and whatever else you can grab. The crux comes about two-thirds of the way up but the climbing is continuous throughout. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
