Oyster Bar Area Rock Climbing
Bighorn Sheep near the Oyster Bar, Joshua Tree NP
This small area just east of Ryan Campground is home to a good collection of crack and face routes on variable quality rock. Approaches are fairly easy and yet often enought to escape the crowds closer to the road.
Park in a large paved turnout midway between Ryan Campground and Hall of Horrors/Saddle Rocks. A signed trail leads to Target Rock
and then branches - right for Conrad Rock
and straight ahead for The Oyster Bar
, Agent Orange Rock
and The Asylum
. Approach times vary from 10 - 20 minutes from the closest parking area.
