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.

The fun starts right away on Bearish, with a difficult crux involving a high step and some very careful balance. After clipping the second bolt, make a difficult and awkward traverse left to an awkward ramp. Work back up to the right, along the ramp. From here the climb ascends straight up with some very interesting moves getting to and passing a large chicken head. Continue up the wall on delicate features to gain the anchor, shared with Skyscraper. Despite the preponderance of lichen, the...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

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