Description 

Another popular spot, the east side of Parking Lot Rock is pretty good. More slab-oriented than its opposite, technique and foot work will be a must. Routes here range from 5.8 to 5.11, with the main concentration being in the 5.10 range. Get your slab on!

Another tall crag, a 60 meter rope will work for most, however a 70m rope will be more convienient.

Morning sun / afternoon shade.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot, follow the trail either left or right to reach the east side of the crag. Continue along the trail that skirts closest to the formation.

It is difficult to stop and place gear in the first 20ft of Funky Bolt.  There is a great hex placement right after the lieback start.

Funky Bolt 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a ID : City of Rocks : ... : Parking Lot Rock - East
The nice crack right of the 2 all-bolted lines on the south end of the east face. It starts thin and hard, eases up, gets tough again, and finally eases up yet one more time. The bolt protects the upper crux, whereas down low the protection is tough to place. The top is very runout, but easy. Stemming and dropknees are a neccesity on this route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
