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.

Bush Crack 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Ranger Station Rock
As you approach the Lost Horse Ranger Station, you will see a formation on the hillside behind the station with a crack splitting the center of the it. This formation is Ranger Rock, and the crack is Bush Crack.The route looks longer than it is. It starts off as a finger crack that widens to fists.I found this to be a very enjoyable climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
