The Lion's Head is a nice, secluded wall in the inner city that just has a nice vibe to it. Not only that, it has some high quality 5.10 climbing to offer visitors. The routes that we climbed are on the west side so the climbing is shady in the morning with afternoons sun.
Park at the new Circle Creek Overlook parking and take the trail west past a couple of cattle gates. Follow signs for the Geowatt formation. Once at Geowatt, head around Geowatt to the west to the next major formation just west of Geowatt. This is Lion's Head. The climbing routes are on the formation's west side.
