Description 

An interesting looking (look for the "sun" and large spot 1/3 the way up) large, and wide wall with a bunch of very nice multi pitch (2-4 pitch) routes on it. Classics include a The Swift (easy 7), Roan Way and Dappled Mare (8) and Bird On A Wire (10a). With a good, solid but not super obvious decent walk off, makes for a great climb. Mix up your J-Tree day with some cool multi-pitch!


Getting There 

Take the Ranger Station Road west for about a half of mile, to the small parking on the south (left) or a bit more to a larger lot on the right. Lost Horse Wall is several hundred yards to the south of the road. It's basically on the east side of the valley you walk into, so it faces west and gets lots of sun. (read - hot!)

Getting to the routes requires some easy scrambling to a ledge system that you can move around to find your route. I suggest finding your route on the the wall before getting really close up!

Decents for the routes are walk offs to the right (south) down some boulders and slabs.

LA Woman 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Lost Horse Wall - Left Side
Located on the Lost Horse Wall, center section, directly behind a large pinyon pine tree. Start just left of Just Another Crack from LA and climb straight up the face past 11 bolts to a 2-bolt lower-off anchor (90 feet).This is a fun, well-protected sport route with a variety of great moves. Sustained for its entire length in the 5.9/5.10- range. The hard to read crux at the 9th bolt makes for a tough on-sight. High on the fun factor- four out of five stars.You can get an optional 4-inch CD (@PO...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
