At just about the time you hit Keys Corner Parking Lot, if you look to the right you'll see this crag across the desert floor blooming in the early morning sun. If you park at the pullout past Keys Corner you will probably be able to identify Right and Left Mel Cracks, the standout climbs of the crag.
From Entrance West pass Keys Corner Parking Lot and then turn right onto the Lost Horse Dirt Road. Park in the second pullout to the left.
