Description 

This covers the handful of crags to the east of Lost Orbit Rock, and is the smallest area with the least amount of climbing.

Although on the short side, these crags offer fun and technical climbing in an out-of-the-way area.

Recommended routes in the area:


Getting There 

From the Lost Orbit Rock - East Face hike east, passing a seasonal stream, and then pick up a well-worn trail heading north. The crags, the largest on the hillside, are readily visible to the right (east). Plan on a 5 minute walk from Lost Orbit Rock, a 10 minute walk from the vicinity of Parking Lot Rock and a 15 minute walk from the upper parking area.

Climbs the somewhat dirty crack to face just left of Ritten on the Wall. Not especially inspiring, but perhaps it will clean up some with traffic. Not a bomb, but no stars. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Lots of good steep, technical face climbs in the 5.10 range here - different from Central Pinnacles.
