Description Suggest change

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, face climbs as well as some fun combination crack/face routes. With all it has to offer this is an excellent wall to spend a few hours or all day.

  •  East facing - so morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There Suggest change

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. 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. 

  • This wall is the back side of the Lost Horse Wall and across from the Freeway and Tiny Tots Rock.
