Probably labouring the point, but I’ve marked the intersection of the four maps on the Topo screenshot below.

The quadrants that “circle” point A are:

Northwest: Joshua Tree South 24:000:1
Northeast: Indian Cove 24:000:1
Southeast: Lost Horse Mtn 62,500:1
Southwest: Thousand Palms 62,500:1

And if the bandana is any indication of Bill’s ascent route of Quail, a map obsessive might have needed two of those maps to cover the route (excluding Thousand Palms and JT South) but all four if there was any risk of falling off the map for any reason.
