Description 

It's location is in the middle of the desert so peek months are usually October-April. There's barely people there and the rock is featured/textured granite with tons of climbing. There are an infinite amount of boulders and the prime spot to do some leads are at Lowenbrau Pinnacle. LP is 2 pitches tall with a handful of quality leads.


Getting There 

Interstate 8 to 94/Campo Exit- turn right (south) to Old Hwy 80 (left) - drive east almost 2 miles, left on McCain Valley Road- onto dirt road at McCain Valley Recreation Area sign... Lark Canyon is 2.7 miles in, Pinnacle Circuit is 5.3 miles in.
