Spectre Point

Spectre Point Professional Review and Guide

"While driving on lonely desert highways, mountain climbers sometimes pass imposing jagged desert peaks and wonder what they would be like to climb. The Coxcomb Mountains, located in the remote northeast corner of Joshua Tree National Park, are emblematic of these kinds of mysterious summits. The crest of the Coxcombs is a triple-peaked massif. The highest peak is called Spectre Point. The northern peak is called Aqua (or Tensor), and has a USGS benchmark. And the most difficult summit to climb is called Dyadic. These challenging cross-country climbs belong on the mustdo list of any serious desert mountaineer. The northern Coxcomb Mountains are in a day-use area; no camping is allowed."
