Hiking the trail from the Central Pinnacles to Los...

Description 

This area includes everthing from the fenceline north to the Central Pinnacles. Crags in the area include Parking Lot Rock, Lost Orbit Rock, Entrance Boulder, Two Tree Rock, Prowler Rocks and more.

Recommend routes in the area:


Getting There 

Approach via forest road 3N07, which parallels the obvious fenceline, and drive to the end of the road where Parking Lot Rock will be obvious. The approach is all of a minute or less; the other crags in the area are reached by a 5-10 minute hike by a trail.

If approaching from the vicinity of the Central Pinnacles, and the northern parking area, plan on a 10-15 minute walk along trails.

After clipping the 2nd bolt start heading up and left on steep but positive incut plates to the fifth bolt where the plates suddenly run-out for your hands. The next bit is balancy and delicate as you get stood up on the highest plate while palming the features and then make a final highstep/mantle to a slop...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
