Description Suggest change

The Lost Horse Wall is located about 300 yards from Lost Horse Road and downstream of the Real Hidden Valley and the Brown Wall. The cliff faces southwest and consequently is sunny much of the day. 

Multi-pitch classics include The Swift (5.7), Dappled Mare (5.8) and Bird on a Wire (5.10a). 

Getting There Suggest change

From the intersection of Quail Springs Road and Lost Horse Road (located about one mile west of Intersection Rock), drive SSW on Lost Horse Road for about a half of mile. On the left (east) will be a small parking just before the road enters a wash. If this parking area is full, continue about 200 yards along Lost Horse Road and you'll find a larger parking area on the right, just before a gate. 

From the first parking area described (on the left of Lost Horse Road), follow a social trail that leads into the obvious wash. Walk SE a couple hundred yards up the wash until you are below the wall. Follow social trails up the talus slope to the base of the wall. The entire approach is about 300 yards.

Decents for many of the routes are walk offs to the climber's right (SE) down some boulders and slabs.
