Description 

This northeast facing rock on a hillside above the Desert Queen Wash is easily identified by the near vertical gully that splits the main formation in half. Currently, All Loin (5.10c - 1 star) and Vector (5.11c - classic) are the only established routes and ascend cracks.


Getting There 

One approach to Vector Rock is to hike north from the Split Rock parking area towards the Desert Queen Wash. Once the Bond Boulders have been reached it is best to remain above the wash that drains into the Desert Queen Wash and veer northwest over undulating terrain. Vector Rock is easily seen from this point but not easily accessed because of the large boulders and vegetation encountered along the way. The distance from the Bond Boulders to Vector Rock is approx. 1/2 mile.

Begin at the base of an obvious right-arching crack that narrows to a seam just below the top. Initially the climbing is easy in the hand sized crack but quickly becomes more demanding as the crack narrows to finger width. The sustained crux section is protected by #00 - #1 TCU's or small stoppers / brass. Technical footwork on thin edges and stamina is necessary to place gear. A committing mantle move (5.10-) out of the seam to the top adds excitement to this J-Tree classic! The des...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
