Description

Hunk Rock is a squat looking formation sitting atop a small hill overlooking the Barker Dam parking lot. It is also just west of Dissolution Rock and is highly visible on the drive to the Wonderland parking area near Uncle Willie's.

Despite it's size it has few classics, although there are some routes worth doing. Some of the routes to check out include the following - Hunkloads To Hermosa (5.9), Death of a Decade (5.10a), Soft Cell (5.10d) and Breath of Death (5.11a).

Getting There

Drive the road towards Barker Dam and park in the giant car corral. Look for the rock and go -a short walk will take one to the base. Also easily reached from the Wonderland parking near Uncle Willie's.

The rap route shown in Bartlett's Central J. Tree guide is incorrect. The rap station was moved to the east face atop the route Soft Cell (about 1995 or so). Feb 11, 2004

There are some new routes between Death of a Decade and Breath of Death. The leftmost one follows a left facing corner to a slab, the right sort of a right facing corner. They both lead to a poorly placed rap station, haven't done the lines, but they look forced at the top. Anyone got the 411 on these? Feb 12, 2004
