Description 

The obvious boulder at the base of Pixie Rock's South Face has two sides worth investigating - the highly featured North Face and the slabby West Face for a collection of problems ranging from V-easy to V6.

The rock quality isn't the best but the ease of access, the flat base and the steepness of the North Face problems make this a worthy stop if in the area.

Getting There 

Approach from parking at nearby Billboard Buttress or elsewhere.

Monkey Gone to Heaven V3 6A  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Pixie Boulder
SDS at the far left side of the North Face and work up and right along huecos and jugs to reach the lip which is traversed past where you'd think to mantle up (V1 if you do) and then contine right and slightly down along the sloping lip to finish with the last moves of Velouria (V0).* 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
