Description

Pixie Rock is another very popular Indian Cove destination, it seems mostly because it features Silent Scream (aka Shock the Monkey) (10a) an excellent route on it's extremely featured northeast face. There are a few other good routes here as well and the rock's near-road location puts it in the ten-second-approach category. If you're so inclined, there's a nice
Playing follow the leader with Woody around the "Pixie Boulder". just east the base of Silent Scream where you can fire a few problems.

Brian Reynolds adds: "[Pixie Rock] is popular -- very popular. The NPS has even built a nice little wooden railing to separate the climber-types from the wildlife. Most of the climbs face southeast and, like most of Indian Cove, they get hot. There is a roundabout walk-off on the back side. Silent but Deadly (5.11b) and Lascivious Conduct (5.11c) look great. There is also a nice trio of short slab climbs right in the middle of the face between Silent Scream and Lascivious Conduct - Who's First (5.6); Vaino's Lost in Pot (5.7 R); and Rhythm of the Heat (5.8 X), all of which are easily toproped with long slings from several randomly-placed bolts on top of the formation."

Getting There

As you enter the Indian Cove Campground, Pixie Rock is on the right (west) side of the road just past the sign marking the road to the group campsites. It faces Billboard Buttress across the road.
