Description 

At the end of Lost Horse Road, where the public dare not drive, lies the Ranger Station. High above the Ranger Station lies the aptly named Ranger Station Rock. Home to a presidential cleft and a heroic figure, as well as a slew of other routes.

Getting There 

Park at the last publically accessible pullout on Lost Horse Road. This is the same pullout used for Atlantis Wall/Jimmy Cliffs et. al. Walk down the dirt road to the Ranger Station. Walk right around the building to a fairly good use trail up the boulder field.

Vogel gives the route 2 stars and gives a decent description of how to get there - it's about 200 feet right of Bush Crack. Start by climbing up a grovely crack until you can get to the main face. Clip a few bolts with no hangers until you can reach the upper part of the route that consists of climbing HUGE fun buckets to the top of this sweet formation. I loved the route and the view I got at the top. Climbing the huge buckets was fun too. A nice chill, out of the way route that you will NEVER...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
