|Parking Lot Rock - West
This is a long pitch on the right side of the face of Parking Lot rock that faces the parking lot. The opening moves climb through a bunch of moss, but get better quickly. After the steep mossy section, wander up to another steep section, which gains a lower angle shelf. Traverse left here and wander that way over easier ground until a rightward ramp leads to the top. Two ropes needed for rappel off of chain anchors (located slightly right of the climb).
Standard Rack up to #3 camalot. A really big piece can protect the opening moves, but isn't necessary.

Solid fun and Varied. Goes in the old book as Parking Lot's 7.

My wife thought this was as hard as Road Rage. So maybe 5.7+? I can't remember to be honest... All I remember is the gear was a little tough. The rock was either crumbly or the walls int he cracks irregular. Fun route though! Worth doing.
Our rope got stuck when rappelling this route. Pull to the right when pulling your rope to avoid this.
