Silver cholla and The Stirrup. Photo by Blitzo.
Stirrup Tank is located just down the road from Belle and White Tank Campgrounds and is a nice area to escape the crowds and confusion of Hidden Valley and the western part of the Park.
The rock quality ranges from horrible to good with most being your standard variety ball-bearing surface which if it saw some traffic would clean up - but that's a big if. Cracks here tend to be somewhat harsh and face climbs can unnerve those unfamiliar with the constantly changing medium; exceptions do exist thankfully.
While in this part of the Park explore a little and take the scenic drive down into the Pinto Basin and check out some of the sights like the Cholla Gardens, Smoke Tree Wash and Ocotillo Patch.
Stirrup Tank is accessed by a dirt road that starts 0.5 miles south of White Tank Campground
on the west side of the Pinto Basin Road. Drive the dirt road 1.5 miles to the end at a parking loop just north of the Stirrup Towers
Weather station 12.1 miles from here
