SDS at the blunt arete with a left hand edge and right hand pinch and power up to a tricky highstep and then finish up fun face past horizontal slashes. Can be done from a standing start at 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
