This slabby face is home to about ten routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11 with an fairly even mix of crack and face climbs. Rock quality ranges from fairly good to atrocious with the seldom done Shit Sandwich (5.9 R/X) an indication of just how bad things can get.

X-Rated Tits (5.9) and An Eye for an Eye And a Route for a Route (5.10b) are some of the more popular routes at this wall.

Getting There 

Approach via the well-marked trail leading to Barker Dam. Lakeside Rock is the obvious slabby face just to the east of the dam.

Featured Route For Lakeside Rock - West Face
Parental Guidance.  The soft crux is just beyond the cam stuffed in a pocket.  A mellow, aesthetic route in a fine place. We descended to the left from the top.  Photo: Dave Rockwell, belayer, Todd Bradley, climber John Ely. 2012

This route begins about forty feet right of X-rated Tits. Climb the left leaning groove and the higher crack system. This is a good route for a novice leader. It was my daughter's first lead at this level of difficulty....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
