Raptor Nesting MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A low-angle slab and popular spot for novice climbers. The east-end has a fair amount of easy and moderate routes with adequate protection and a good selection of rests. Mostly cracks with a sprinkle of bolted and mixed routes.

Descent: A large amount of east-side climbing requires you build you our anchor. If this is the case, you can use the rap anchor on top of Pure Pleasures or simply down-climb the 5.5 Summit Route to the north.

Morning sun / Afternoon Shade

Getting There 

Continue past Parking Lot Rock towards the left/north side. Continue down the trail, stay left at the fork and head down and across the creek bed until it breaks up and left, leaning east towards the backside of Window Rock.

In the center of the east face on Window Rock are a series of perfect hand cracks that don't quite make it to the ground. Look for a bolt below the start of two of these cracks. The left crack is Good Times, and the right crack is Pure Pleasure. Both are 5.7, and both are enjoyable. You should do these as well. Drunken Climber is the crack to the right of these.There is a tree at the base of the route. Start at this tree and head up into the crack above you to its end.
