Goof Proof Roof is located in the middle of nowhere on the Indian Head formation. Consult the latest Joshua Tree climbers guide book.

Due to the current amount of fixed gear, no hammering is necessary. The pitches now go at C1f (P1), C2f (P2), and 5.8. The largest cam used was a .75. Two sets of hybird aliens are useful but having the smallest SLCD's is also a good idea (Black Alien, #00 Metolius, #000 BD C3). The third pitch is very chossy and takes small nuts (#1-4 BD) and/or cams.
