Pulling through to some good holds after the crux ...


Mostly north facing. Rock is similar in type to the BMX Crags.

Getting There 

Off of Hwy 18, turn North on Joshua Road, Right on Yucca Loma Road and head 2 miles to a dirt road on the right (labeled "Sherri Lane" on Google Maps). From here you can see The Dead Zone. Drive back and park in the parking area.

I agree. I used the So Cal Sport book and the overview map shows areas not on Mountain Project. Was looking for Shipwreck formation but lots of scrambling led to no rock :(
