Description

The farthest crag in Munchkinland (which is roughly; the No Place Like Dome area, Witch/Voodoo/Wizard Rocks, and the Scarecrow Munchkinland Rocks). It is home to the sporty face routes Robocop meets the Munchkins ( 5.10a ) and Over the Rainbow ( 5.10d ) as well as the sphincter tightening Smiles for the Grim Reaper ( 5.10c ).

Perhaps not a destination crag in itself, it is worth a hike over from Dorothy's Crag in the Valley of Voices or perhaps No Place Like Dome.

Getting There

The most direct approach is from the Munchkinland parking (closed road 1.4 mi north of Pinto Wye; 3.5 miles from the North Entrance). Approach the most obvious pass into a series of formations (the approach to No Place Like Dome). From the mouth of this wash, cut up and right into a drainage on the hillside. At the top of this drainage, pass beteween Voodoo Dome and Witch Rock, continue between Wizard Rock and an unamed clump (this is fairly rough going with some boulder hopping). Munchkinland Crag is the largest formation up on the hillside, facing southwest.

The cleanest approach is to come in from the Valley of Voices. Keep going past Dorothy's Crag, on the way down keep the large formations to your left. Munchinland Crag will be on your left, the last large formation.
