Description

The Peyote Cracks Formation has 3 decent cracks on its west face - Left (5.10+), Middle (5.9), and Right (5.8) Peyote Crack. There are also a few face climbs. All of the routes are fairly short.

The east face of the formation is also known as the Bachar Toprope Wall and has an assortment of overhanging, difficult routes in the 5.12-5.13 range, including the 12a sport route Apartheid and the (generally toproped) testpiece Baby Apes (5.12c).

Getting There

From the back loop of Hidden Valley Campground, walk generally north as if heading to Echo Cove. Peyote Cracks will be about half way. The west face is identified by 3 prominent cracks (The Peyote Cracks).
