A tall east/west facing buttress, Parking Lot Rock
is home to around 24 routes with the majority in the 5.7 to 5.9 range. This is a low approach cliff with potential for day-round climbing as the sun switches faces. As with most City of Rocks
areas, most routes have some trad gear needed with 6 or so exceptions. There are a few clasics on this cliff. Delay of Game
, Norma's Book
, Funky Bolt
, and Just Another Pretty Face
all deserve classic status.
Take Emery Canyon Road off of City of Rocks Road, until you pass campsites 64 & 65. Park at the parking lot on the right. Parking Lot Rock is the obvious cliff closest to the Parking Lot (hence the name).

The first 2 bolts require a little leftward zagging, and then you traverse right under the roof band. Get on top of the roof band and traverse left. Finally pick your smear, and head on up to the chains. A smearing climb amidst a sea of edging. ...[more] Browse More Classics in ID
