Jeffy on the Turnbuckle Arete (V-easy), Joshua Tree NP

Turnbuckle Arete V-easy 3  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Turnbuckle Rock
Start right of Turnbuckle and lieback up the curving arete to a rounded mantle finish - probably about 5.9 in difficulty. An easy downclimb is found on the backside (East face) of the boulder.* 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
