BETA PHOTO: South Horror Rock, featuring Lazy Day.
South Horror Rock, one of the closest rocks to the parking area, is home to a number of fun and challenging routes that due to a minimal approach often see traffic.
Some of the better climbs here include the fun crack of Lazy Day
(5.7), the balancy and slabby arete that's Garden Angel
(5.10a), Dog Day Afternoon
(5.10b) with it's steep face climbing and Cactus Flower
(5.11b) which requires a combination of power and grace to succeed.
Easily reached via a good trail from the paved parking area.

Thirty feet from the left edge of the rock is this steep finger/hand crack that passes a horizontal crack partway up. Gear belay and easy walk/scramble down a low-angled ramp off the backside (climber's left). Although this route can be a little awkward in spots it's good fun and the short approach is hard to beat. A popular route and a good introduction to the Hall of Horrors. Three stars out of five. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
