Description

This is a great destination with a wealth of moderates stretched out along a featured wall in a scenic location. Choose from excellent knobby cracks, some face climbs as well as some fun crack/face routes. This is an excellent wall to spend a few hours or all day. East facing - so morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There

From Quail Springs Rd turn right at the Lost Horse Rd. (graded dirt) which is 7.5 miles from the Entrance Station and 2.0 miles from Trash Can Rock. Proceed 0.3 miles to a turnout on the left. Note- this is a very popular area with very limited parking, so you may need to park elsewhere and walk a bit further. There is a trail which starts from the parking area, but quickly you are scrambling on rocks which makes it hard to find the best path. Lastly this wall is the back side of the Lost Horse Wall and across from the Freeway and Tiny Tots Rock.
