Description 

This small block/pinnacle lies about 25 yards northeast of Disaster Dome. Two routes are known: Plantismal (5.8/9) on the southeast face (facing Disaster Dome) and Bring Your Own Wheelbarrow (10a) a fractured offwidth crack on the northeast face.

Getting There 

From the Southern Wonderland parking area, hike to a ruin (Uncle Willie's) then left under trees into the Wonderland Wash. Proceed north along the Wonderland Wash for about 0.5 mile where it opens up into a broader valley (the Wonderland Valley). The Astro Domes can be seen toward the northwest (leftish). Now head slightly to the left and proceed through a narrow spot on the main trail.

From here continue north along a trail for about 625 yards. In the process, you will pass Surprise Rock, Freak Brothers Dome and The Weenie on your right (east) and be just beyond Punk Rock to your left (west). At this point, Disaster Dome will be seen in profile about 275 yards to the west-northwest. From this vantage point, Wheelbarrow Rock is to the right of Disaster Dome.

Nice view.

Planetismal 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Wheelbarrow Rock
This route starts in a low angle chimney behind a tree. It steepens and turns to a hand crack after 20 or 30 feet. The upper zig zag hand crack is the crux and is a bit on the grainy side. A good crack to test your hand jamming expertise. If you can do it without bleeding...bravo!! Two bolts for belay and lower off. It is named after a forming planet....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
