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.

Hercules 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Ranger Station Rock
A route the quality of which is the equal of any in the park. Extolled as a thin hands crack in guide books, I found this overhanging beauty more of a finger crack. Protection is abundant, but you have to hold on to place it. If you can make it through the crux to the pod just below the rim, you can eke out a rest.
