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 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
