Misty Mountain is moving the crack climbing goodness further west to Joshua Tree, California. This video showcases three juicy boulder problems, so let’s tape up!
Matt Kuehl gets first dibs with Pig Pen (V4), found in J-Tree’s Hidden Valley Campground area. Behind Cyclops rock you’ll find this sit start in a cave, with ten feet of roof finger crack, a tight hands swing around the lip, followed by a skinny finger crack that opens to tight hands at the funky top out. Don’t forget your boulder pad for the top out.
The second problem is Hobbit Hole, in the Outback Area, climbed by Matt Kuehl. Hobbit Hole is a nice off width V0 that gets wider as you go, and offers a great introduction to the wonderful world of wide cracks.
The video finishes with Adam Floyd sending Nixon Left, another V0 in the Outback Area of Joshua Tree. This sweet crack line is a great moderate highball problem with a bravery check at the top.
