Joel on Relic (V9), Joshua Tree NP

Description 

This is the boulder directly south of the Iron Door Cave (IDC) Boulder and recognizable by it's overhung north face resembling a breaking wave of stone. The rock here is mostly tan with the exception of the dark patina on the north-facing problems. Short but fun problems for all abilities - Bedrock Arete (V0), Stoney Point Problem (aka Bambam) (V3), Yabba Dabba Do (V6), Relic (V9) and Tidal Wave (V11).


Getting There 

Approach from Hidden Valley CG by following a trail past the east face of The Blob, from the paved road near the vicintiy of Steve Canyon or even from the vicinity of Echo Cove.
