Description 

Conveniently located just off the Lost Horse Road this portion of the Freeway Wall houses a collection of over a dozen easy to moderate routes from 5.4 to 5.11a with most being 5.9 and easier.

No standout climbs here but False Smooth as Silk (5.4), Smooth as Silk (5.7), Thigh Master (5.9) and Stop Trundling (5.9) are a notch above the rest.

Getting There 

Access via the Lost Horse Road and park where available near the formation. A minimal approach along boulders leads to the base of the wall. Plan on roughly 5 minutes for the approach.
